cecil touchon interviewed by pierre gervois

Cecil Touchon was Born in 1956 in Austin, Texas is a contemporary American collage artist, painter, published poet, and theorist living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Co-founder of the International Post-Dogmatist Group, Touchon is director of the group’s Ontological Museum, Founder of the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage, and Construction, and founder of the International Society of Assemblage and Collage Artists. Cecil Touchon is best known for his Typographic Abstraction works that ‘Free the letters from their burden of being bearers of meaning”.

Touchon co-founded the International Post-Dogmatist Group (IPDG) in 1987. Primarily an alternative to a post-modernist view of the world, the group’s writings suggest that creativity and artistic pursuits must be based in a recognition of the spiritual underpinnings of all human activities. The IPDG addresses itself to the art world through a presentation of itself as the ‘official avant-garde’ creating an elaborate bureaucratic structure of outlandish sounding offices through which the various members communicate simulating ‘the establishment’ as a form of parody.

In 2005 an exhibition was held in Cuernavaca, Mexico entitled “Cecil Touchon – Thirty Years of Fluxing Around” in which art works and scores dating as early as 1975 were exhibited showing the fluxus tendency in Touchon’s work over the last thirty years. Touchon has never been formally associated with the Fluxus group until the year 2000 with his participation in the Fluxlist – an email group where the current generation fluxus artists interact and collaborate. In 2002 Touchon, with a number of other artists from the Fluxlist established the Fluxnexus – a group of artists working together on various new Fluxus projects including a new Fluxus performance workbook. In 2006 Touchon established the FluxMuseum in order to assemble and archive samples of works by contemporary 21st Century Fluxus artists. The central focus of the Fluxmuseum has been the creation of Fluxus related publications and curating and mounting international exhibitions of Fluxus art called Fluxhibitions.

Ken Friedman, (born September 19, 1949 in New London, Connecticut) is a seminal figure in Fluxus, an international laboratory for experimental art, architecture, design, and music. Friedman joined Fluxus in 1966 as the youngest member of the classic Fluxus group. He has worked closely with other Fluxus artists and composers such as George Maciunas, Dick Higgins, and Nam June Paik, as well as collaborating with John Cage and Joseph Beuys. He was the general manager of Dick Higgins’s Something Else Press in the early 1970s. In the 1990s, Friedman’s work as a management consultant and designer led him to an academic career, first as Professor of Leadership and Strategic Design at the Norwegian School of Management in Oslo, then as Dean of the Faculty of Design at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. Friedman is currently University Distinguished Professor at Swinburne and Chair Professor of Design Innovation Studies at Tongji University.
