Change Itself – An Art Apart: Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.42.18

A new film in the An Art Apart series has been finished: Change Itself – An Art Apart: Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. How to make a film about someone who’s led such an adventurous life and been so productive for 50 years? Genesis probably deserves an entire series of documentaries, but I have at least tried to compress the general overview into one single film. Not easy! The result is now ready to be screened, and will be released on VOD and DVD in August.

”To sum up the life and work of British artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is close to impossible. Not only because of the wide range of artistic disciplines, but also because of the timespan, since the mid 1960s to the present day, that has been saturated by hundreds of records, thousands of concerts, exhibitions, interviews, videos, spoken word performances, collages, sculptures, philosophy, cultural engineering, occultism and radical transgender concepts. A couple of descriptions are still valid after these 50 years of active creativity and provocation. P-Orridge is a romantic existentialist and a cultural engineer. Everything is both work as such and seed for cultural and behavioural change.”
