"Degenerate Art- the art and culture of glass pipes" DVD - a Documentary on American Functional Art by SLINGER


Product Description

"Degenerate Art" tells the story of glass pipe-making from the origins of the "color-changing" pipe, to the radical emerging art movement it has become today. Despite federal laws, pipe-makers have created a whole new genre of American folk art. A huge multi-million dollar industry has formed around this taboo culture. This subversive art challenges our right to free speech and expression, as well as reflecting the nature of the people who make and collect the pieces. One of the last true underground American scenes, glass pipe art remains invisible to mainstream culture.

  1. This documentary is an amazing cultural artifact! 5 Star Review

    I am using this documentary to teach and explore the ideas of culture, subculture, and counterculture in the Intro. to Sociology class I teach. This documentary is as an important cultural artifact that stands to represent the sea of social change we currently find ourselves experiencing.

    Awesome look into the glass art world, an excellent insight into the artists, the art and the influence behind the scene. This movie is a must watch for any glass head or simple collector. Keep it glassy folks

  4. A good look into "underground" glass 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2012

    I honestly didn't expect it to be so well produced. I can say it was even moving. Very motivating stuff.
    They prove that they possess more skills than glass blowing with this top quality film.
    I only wish it was longer.
