Beautiful Losers – on DVD
Finally, the incredible documentation “Beautiful Losers” is available to be bought on Amazon. I pre-ordered the DVD months ago and a few weeks back I got an email that Amazon could not tell me a date for delivery. After that I got another email and I didn’t look at it, because I thought that they stopped trying to organize the DVD. But after my holidays in Düsseldorf I found the DVD in my mail. And finally tonight I was in the right mood and had the free time to watch it.
I imagine you have read or heard about movie.
“BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation.
In the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the “establishment” art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.
Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes “in” as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.”
It’s definitely worth it buying the DVD. I barely saw something inspiring and entertaining about art, DIY-culture and following your passion. WATCH IT!
