Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

A maestro of the “happenings” that appeared in the second half of the 20th century, Robert Filliou‘s artistic oeuvre also contained film-making, “action poetry,” and sculpture, fittingly placing him in the Fluxus movement.
