Abstract (English)

"Go Bananas in this playful, political and wholly creative tribute to one of the country's most unusual artists. Anna Banana has been fearlessly engaging audiences first as Town Fool and now as Doktor Anna Freud Banana, producing parodic publications, creating and exchanging artists's stamps and other original events for more than forty-five years. Yet, despite being widely recognized and admired in countercultural communities, she continues to be overlooked by the mainstream. As last this stunning retrospective celebrates the originality and impact of Anna Banana and her work, situating it within the synergistic network of international mail artists who laid the groundwork for today's social media, maker faires and flash mobs." -- Dust jacket.
