Jeff Keen was among the most influential of a pioneering generation of experimental film-makers to emerge from the United Kingdom in the postwar period. An artist and poet, Keen introduced cut-up, multimedia displays and performance into his countercultural cinematic events.

 

Putting a British spin on contemporaneous movements such as Beat, Fluxus and Viennese Actionism, Keen was also a participant in the 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium organised by Gustav Metzger. An interview with Gustav Metzger is published alongside Keen’s work in the ninth print issue of The White Review.
