Jonas MekasScrapbook of the Sixties Writings 1958 – 2010
Andy Warhol, Susan Sontag, John Lennon & Yoko Ono – Jonas Mekas knew many New York artists well. Born in Lithuania, he came to Brooklyn via Germany in 1949 and began shooting his first experimental films there. Mekas developed a form of logbook in which he recorded his daily observations. He became the barometer of the New York art scene and a pioneer of American avant-garde cinema. It was in 1958 that Jonas Mekas began publishing his famous Movie Journal column in Village Voice, which covered a variety of topics beyond the world of cinema. “Scrapbook of the Sixties” brings together many of these articles as well as interviews with artists and unpublished texts.
