Starting in the early sixties, Fluxus followed in the footsteps of the Futurist and Dada avant-gardes, going against the established grain of Fine Art and Official Art. Fluxus‚ an interdisciplinary aesthetic brings together influences as diverse as Zen, Science and daily life, and puts them to poetic use.

John Latham (1921 - 2006) was one of the most important British artists of the post-war period, best remembered for his painting and sculptural works which incorporated materials such as glass, canvas and books. Less well-known, but now restored after several decades out of circulation, are the six films which Latham made during the 1960s and early 1970s. These films developed Latham’s concepts of ‘time-base’ and ‘structure in events’ through playful and varied use of stop-frame animation, from the stroboscopic collage Speak (1960) to the cosmological meditation Erth (1971).

These films foreground the experiences of our surroundings and cinematic space, while engaging in singular aesthetic journeys of their own. Narratives of space are traced in this work, exploring material environments constructed as sites, by movement and habit, and the workings of finance and capital.
