I'm artist. And Rauschenberg arte peaces has been inspired me a lot. His taste of mix materials to create the arte peace. But after watching this documentary I found my self closer to him as a person as well. His humor. That's true (artist artist are wary sensible people and it's hard sometimes). Go to around the world fore create the peace - that's what the world needs nowadays (the first arte piece what I did was called "Peace"). Thanks a lot for this documentary and people who are writing the comments how they met him.

In the 1970s, when I was a much younger woman, I would dress up to go to art openings. I used to wear a lot of vintage clothing. At an opening at The Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC, I wore a 1930s-40s gown and an ermine shawl around my shoulders. As I walked up the stairs in the Gallery, Rauschenberg and a male friend were coming down the stairs. He asked about my shawl. I told him it was Herman the Ermine. He smiled and laughed. I've always felt he was an innovator. This film proves it. I didn't know about his travels to promote peace. He was a good soul. I really like the fact that he wanted to do good in the world. May his foundation, school, art and memory prosper and continue to inspire people.

I am taken by the great 80's music. It seems to fit the character of the artist. The "great De Kooning rub out" has recently been duplicated by contemporary artists and by Banksy "rubbing out" his own work
You British are the last people that promote the tradition of developed, calm and ironic language and depth of research (it is not a coincidence that both Hirst and Banksy and the Anglo-Saxon\american artists lead the art market (due to the support of huge textual and video critiques of their work). Today the word documentary is latently becoming synonym of outdated format. But it is not. Continue in doing it British.

You should do a series on Jasper Johns. He is a better artist & much more important historically.

I sold a painting to a doctor in Naples, Fl. in 2007. She owned an RR original... It consisted of a brown splotch, a blue drippy splotch of paint, and a photo of an old style barber shop pole appearing in upper left corner. Probably a million dollar piece today. Total fucking garbage but l pretended l was impressed in order not to hurt the customer's feelings as she seemed so proud of her monstrosity. Junk. Art snob hosts with distinguished English accents cannot legitimize trash, but Lord knows they try. www.kobasky.com

Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven. Anyone can learn to copy what they see. A very select few can understand and interpret what is not apparent to all.

I once heard "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I try to see the beauty in things even in abstract or almost any art form. Also to see what story is being told in the piece based on what I've learned to observe in art. It's remarkable that he's very creative with his medium and could find anything and make it into a art piece. He just seems very innovative. Some people may not understand or admire such an artist but just the fact that he could take anything and make something out of it makes him seem like a person that thinks outside of the box.

I only came across his work Open Score because of one of my uni assignments, and found this documentary because of that. But after watching it I really appraciate that there exists this documentary to tell his story. It was a remarkable life. Thanks for sharing it.

Thomas Outt (10 months ago)
I think  Rauschenberg's works that focused upon the print & ink transfers was far more interesting than the miniature train wrecks.  At least with the former, you could get a sense  of his direction, style, and the things that truly interested him & how he was able to effectively share those interests with others.  "Expanding the boundaries of art" by splashing some paint on train wrecks, giving them a fancy name such as 'combines,' does not show much worth.  No one wins in these things, so 'to each his/her own.'

not every piece of art has to be significantly technical but this is not art. he was one of the many contributors to the destruction of real art with this "modern art" bullshit.

what a travesty art has become. the great masters must be spinning like dervishes in their graves. i like contemporary art, but those purveying it need to show technical skill, imagination and say something meaningful . if art is devoid of these things, it is no longer art. It is a joke played by a charlatan for cynical self interest. the public have been deriding such mockeries of art for at least 75 years. That said, the modern era has produced some truly brilliant artists - andy warhol, francis bacon, anthony gormley, banksy, joan miro, etc Those are just some of the better known names. There are thousands of lesser known artists of genuine artistic merit also.
Marc Bell (3 months ago)
Go to a small art gallery and ask 50 people there what piece is their favorite. The one you thought the least of will be somebody's favorite. Trust the art experts to tell you or go with your gut and just like what you like. Art is only a travesty if it endlessly copies itself and never tries anything new.
thom wheeler castillo (10 months ago)
uhhh Bob Rauschenberg did this in the 50's... so there would be no Warhol without Rauschenberg. Or Warhol would've stayed an illustrator. Maybe if you tried to be an artist, and see how hands on BR was, how he experimented and created new techniques, you'd see how wrong you are through your own experience of materials.

If you're calling Robert Rauschenberg a "travesty" and still in 2017 are using words like "charlatan", you sir need to get out of the 1800's and OPEN YOUR EYES AND MIND.

Before 1900 art was highly figurative and representational. It clearly derived from real object sources. After 1900 very few artists continued drawing, painting, and sculpting in the pre-1900 highly figurative and representational art styles like Baroque, Rococco, Neoclassicism, Romantic art, Academic art, and Realism. However, even today there are still a small number of artists who continue to make art in the pre-1900 highly figurative and representational styles, good examples can be found in the Art Renewal Center website (https://www.artrenewal.org/). I had a thought the other day about present day artists who continue to make art in the pre-1900 styles. The abstract art that has been overwhelmingly popular and valuable since 1900 has either barely depicted the 20th-21st century world or not at all. We think that all of the recording media (photographic/movie film, VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, hard drives etc) that we have used since 1900 to record the 20th-21st century world will last for a long time but actually they won't. Nitrate movie film, before it was superseded by acetate movie film, is so chemically unstable that it spontaneously decomposes over a 50 to 100 year period. Nitrate film is also flammable, so flammable that it keeps burning under water, so a lot of old movies were destroyed in nitrate film fires. The early generations of acetate movie film were not much better, they spontaneously decompose in a chemical process that the movie industry call "vinegar syndrome". Consequently, 90% of pre-1930 movies are lost forever, and 75% of 1930 to 1950 movies are also lost forever. Classic movies like Metropolis (1927) and Citizen Kane (1941) are among the lucky few that survived to the present day. And don't think that VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, hard drives etc are any better. Think of those old VHS tapes that you may still have, you cannot watch them without a VCR, but no more VCRs are being made because the VHS recording media technology is obsolete. The same thing will eventually happen with CDs, DVDs, hard drives etc and all of their content (photos, motion picture recordings etc) won't be readable anymore. Now what will people in the 26th or 27th century do when they want to SEE the history of the 20th-21st century. All of our VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, hard drives etc might still be readable in the 26th or 27th century but the reading technology will be long obsolete, to the point where it would be prohibitively expensive and time consuming or even completely impossible to recreate the reading technology (VCRs, CD players, DVD players, 20th-21st century vintage computer technology for reading 20th-21st century vintage hard drives etc) from scratch. People in the 26th or 27th century would then turn to the art of the 20th-21st century, but that art will show them nothing of the 20th-21st century because the vast majority of it is abstract rubbish. Then the people of the 26th or 27th century will turn to the precious few examples of 20th-21st century vintage, pre-1900 style, highly figurative, representational art. I will let you guess which style of art they will cherish a squillion times more.

Excellent. Great insight into a generous and gentle man, despite what you may think of his work. Really appreciate the British perspective as well. We need to broaden our inputs
Tram Hill (1 year ago)
Have never liked his work. His problem is that he doesn't know how to free any given space and allow it to breathe. There is clash and clutter (of colors and shapes) and you go away aesthetically displeased. In musical terms, I'd say he makes noise, loud and obnoxious.

tram: you are incredibly shallow.

Good analogy, however if we comparing to music, then his and Cy Twombly's 'drawing' from 1953 must be pure silence.. ;)

Art at its least interesting but fortunately I can use this in my essay. Is there ANY thought or meaning behind a tennis game with a shitty sound for the hits? It's like Dadaism if it took itself seriously - which is a paradox, of course.

@ Liam... well it is Dadaism and Dada was NOT serious, Dada considered the world and thus the art world as totally silly... the Dadaists even went so far as to proclaim that they were against Dadaism... Marcel would walk around Paris with his pet lobster on a leash... nothing silly about that right ? What's interesting to one is dull to another... enjoy the parade of crazy humans

This was an interesting program, however the host is a bit too over the top and exaggerated at times...it detracts from the content The comments at the end, especially from his sister were incredibly touching " the best job in the whole world was being Bob's little sister.." what a person he must have been to receive such a compliment!
Omega Man (1 month ago)
It was a fantastic effort. However would love more if they delved into his art more instead of the interviewer just interviewing people as some sort of journalistic triumph. Gave up at the last 20 minutes. Didn't even show his most famous art for which he is famous for! The white one...
