Don’t Trust Anyone Over Thirty
Continuing the artist’s cultural analysis of the ’60s, this is a satiric entertainment which began with Graham’s 1981 video, Rock My Religion, dealing with the evolution of youth culture during the ’50s, ’60s, and after. Don’t Trust… is set in the late ’60s to early ’70s period when the ‘hippie’ tribes moved their ‘counter culture’ to settlements to the bucolic ‘wilderness’ of the countryside. The work as Graham originally conceived it was meant to be staged as a puppet show, like The Muppets, for entertainment of former hippie fathers or grandfathers to see as a historical recreation by their children or grandchildren.
This is an artist book with an accompanying DVD of the film, Don’t Trust Anyone Over Thirty. [publisher's note]
