Andy Warhol's last love (1978-1981) ( Visual )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The videotape of this theater production by Squat Theatre, originally staged in 1978, is made up of three episodes loosely constructed around the notion of an encounter between Andy Warhol and Ulrike Meinhof, the German terrorist who died in prison in 1977, reportedly by her own hand. This phantasmagorical meeting is between two wildly different embodiments of contemporary alienation. The film includes the film piece, "An Imperial Message," the text of which is taken from a parable by Franz Kafka
Pig, child, fire! (1977) ( Visual )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Based on the confessions of Nikolai Stavrogin in Dostoyesvsky's "The Devils", this performance is characteristic of the Squat Theatre's recombinant aesthetic, which fuses disparate cultural references. Elements include motifs from late-1940's gangster movies, music by the influential German electronic group Kraftwerk, Antonin Artaud's incendiary letter to Andre Breton, and the uncanny use of 'real life': a live dinner scene in which, night after night, the children of Squat members, along with their mother, ate their meal and engaged in conversation before the audience
Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free (1982) ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Squat Theatre described this piece, which was presented both as a film and as a live show, as "an open journey through situations, styles and moods ; an 'Arabian Nights' with heroes and legends written on the New York wind whistling the melody of 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.'" The 90-minute video combines drama with documentary, blurring the distinctions between theater and the everyday. In an indelible sequence that typifies the Squat Theatre's idiosyncratic cultural references, the underground pop icon Nico performs a marvelously jaded rendition of "New York, New York". The film includes long film sequences, which eventually give way to a bizarre cabaret act, a battlefield scene, and an inscrutable sculpture in the shape of a giant baby with TV sets for eyes
