International Performance Art Festival
in Toronto, Canada 2002
Istvan Kantor Monty Cantsin? Amen! (Ontario)
An Unseen Selection from the Days of Song and Sex
7 Nov. 2002
A co-presentation with Pleasure Dome
November 7, 9 pm
at The Latvian House, 491 College St. (Toronto)
The exhaustive program of video and live performance, chosen from over two decades of material, deconstructs Istvan Kantorfs totalitarian assault of machine, sex and militancy. Kantorfs tumultuous career as an internationally notorious performance artist, videomaker, musician, founder of Neoism (1979, Montreal), and proud recipient of many jail sentences for unwanted blood-x interventions in museums, has seen his work overlooked and rejected by critics and institutions.
This event introduces his passionate, revolutionary vision, highly experimental video, risk-taking philosophy, and radical ideas on a very personal level. The evenings multiple-screen barrage will include a performance of the Machine Sex Action Group, early street and club performances, vintage video works, blood, transvestitism, proto-porn, animal and durational experiments, his family, and found footage, as well as a live expanded music/video performance of his 80s Neoist hits.
