Anti-Beauty is a collective of artists and musicians whom join together to create, perform and showcase avant garde music and film inspired by the anti film making styles of the new punk cinema movement.
The name of our group took on the influence of anti art dating back to the Neo-Dada period which encouraged fluxus artists to challenge the philosophies of aesthetics by determining that art could not be defined.
The projection of our films are based on an Anti-Art film making manifesto which we have forged as a new film genre that is innovating in todays film industry. This genre explores the individual’s technical process and experimentation of the film paradox by contradiction; hybridizing video art, experimental and guerrilla film together as the Anti-Art Film.
Our music is based on having a punk attitude towards conventional songwriting by performing original songs that incorporate improvisation within origins of performance art which makes each performance rare and unique.
