"NO!art" and the Aesthetics of Doom - The Retrospective Exhibition
from Milman Interarts on Vimeo.

The following is an excerpt from 'BORIS LURIE NO!art MAN,' a film by Amikam Goldman. In it the filmmaker documents Dietmar Kirvis' conservation and preparation for shipping of an important body of NO!art works that were included in the 2001 exhibition 'NO!art' and the Aesthetics of Doom. The film also documents the installation of the show at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, and provides an invaluable historical record of a cross section of responses, as these were voiced by diverse members of the exhibition's public. Curated by Estera Milman and funded, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, 'NO!art' and the Aesthetics of Doom is still counted as the collective's most comprehensive North American retrospective exhibition, to date.
