Boo-Hooray Catalog #12: Underground Film

Boo-Hooray Catalog #12: Underground Film

Boo-Hooray is proud to present our latest catalog, tracing the emergence and trajectory of underground film in New York in the early 1960s to the 1980s: the organizations, screenings, and anti-censorship struggle that gathered and contextualized the films and artists into a coherent and recognizable whole; the move towards experimental, community oriented, and pedagogic video art and activism in the 1970s; and then the crossover of video art and the 1980s downtown scene. Many of the materials document not just the screenings and happenings themselves, but also the array of auxiliary organizations that nurtured and promoted the underground scene.

Boo-Hooray Catalog #10: Flyers

Boo-Hooray Catalog #10: Flyers

Boo-Hooray is proud to present our tenth antiquarian catalog, exploring the ephemeral nature of the flyer. We love marginal scraps of paper that become important artifacts of historical record decades later. In this catalog of flyers, we celebrate phenomenal throwaway pieces of paper in music, art, poetry, film, and activism.
