It's Art Darling - BOOKLET and creative back alleys

It is a well known fact that BOOKLET likes to see things from every available perspective, and doesn’t like to block out anyone else’s view by doing so. This issue our ambitious art department features John Waters amongst others.

Since the beginning of the 90s, writer, producer, director and self-confessed porn fan John Waters (*1946 in Baltimore) has met with increasing kudos within the art scene. His work is displayed in exhibitions all over the world. He is best known for his films, including Pink Flamingos (1972), Female Trouble (1974) and Hairspray (1988), all of which would be unthinkable without congenial transvestite Divine (* 19 October 1945 in Towson, Maryland; † 7 March 1988 in Los Angeles, California; born: Harris Glenn Milstead). This curious duo was long considered the last resort in all things trash. His latest film project “Fruitcake” is fighting for funding in these gruelling times of recession.

The dubious “Rear Projections“ exhibition is named after the classic movie trick of filming scenes on location, which would then later be projected onto a background in the studio whilst actors would act out in front of it. The additional rear projections presented here stem from Paul Graves, Kourtney Roy, Marcio del Nero ....
