Dear Jonas, dear José Luis – a cinematic letter exchange in the form of nine short film notes, framed in classic style with a salutation and farewell greeting. Jonas Mekas, the Nestor of the American avant-garde, and Catalonian filmmaker José é Luis Guerín take turns in filming snapshots of their lives from all over the world, taking in driving snow, Ken and Flo Jacobs or pigeons on the street in New York here and reflections on a empty cinema screen and a moving conversation with Slovenian film critic Nika Bohinc there. Filmmaking and their two very different working methods also often form the theme. It is a correspondence between two different temperaments – Guerín’s stylized black and white and formalist will, Mekas’s wild video camera – and yet very much the work of two true pen pals.
In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
