Video: Artists, Scholars, and Counterculture Veterans Discuss the Bay Area's Hippie Legacy

Fluid Identities. Liberated Territories. Creative Communes. Counterculture / Cyberculture. The topics of these four panel discussions, which took place this spring at BAMPFA under the collective title Hippie Modernism Forums, provide instant insight into the continued relevance of 1960s and ’70s counterculture. That counterculture is explored in depth in Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia, on view at BAMPFA through Sunday, May 21.
