Publisher Note

The present edition appears in the series “Performance Saga, Interviews 01–08”, which collects recordings of conversations with female pioneers of performance art and provides insight into their self-image and thinking.
Alison Knowles is a founding member of the New York Fluxus Group and has been involved in its actions and exhibitions since the inaugural Fluxus concerts of 1962. She understands art as a process; the action is important to her, not the object. Sound often plays an important role in her performances. They are radically non-theatrical and anchored in the everyday.
In a conversation among female artists, Alison Knowles provides information about her work and tells of the conditions under which her work was created. A text booklet with a contribution by Martina Papiro completes this DVD edition.
