DIY-Art-Doku online: Beautiful Losers

(Youtube Direktlosers, via Juxtapoz)

Über die Doku „Beautiful Losers“ (Website zum Film) hatte ich zuletzt vor anderthalb Jahren gebloggt, damals schrieb ich: „'Beautiful Losers' ist eine wundervolle Doku über Streetart und DIY-Künstler, viele der interviewten Designer hatte ich schon hier auf Nerdcore. We were pretty stupid… and great. You know: awesomely dumb. Wunderbar!“ Stimmt immer noch.

Was nicht mehr stimmt: „Wann und ob dieser Film überhaupt in Deutschland irgendwo zu sehen sein wird, weiß ich nicht“, denn der Film ist in neun Teilen kompletto auf Youtube zu sehen.

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
