Teaching and Learning as Performing Arts

First published in 1970 and long out of print, visionary artist Robert Filliou’s essential primer Teaching and Learning as Performing Arts has now been reprinted in its entirety by Occasional Papers. Along with extensive writing by Filliou, the book includes interviews with numerous artists close to him, such as Joseph Beuys, George Brecht, John Cage, Dorothy Iannone, Allan Kaprow and Diter Rot.
This edition is an exact facsimile of the original, in order to preserve its highly inventive bilingual (English/German) layout and idiosyncratic composition.
March 13, from 7pm, at Whitechapel Gallery, London, the launch will be the occasion to a conversation with Clive Robertson, who worked extensively with Filliou, recordings of Filliou’s performance-lecture, The Gong Show, and a presentation by artist Richard Demarco, followed by an in conversation with co-founder of Occasional Papers Antony Hudek.
