The New York-Brussels Charlemagne Palestine is a multidisciplinary artist who is not easily pigeonholed. He was part of the singular avant-garde and underground scene in New York during the sixties and seventies. Palestine is also associated with Fluxus, and artists such as Robert Filliou, James Lee Byars, Gordon Matta-Clark, Laurie Anderson and Philip Glass.

Renowned for his legendary performances and works with video and music, he is best known today for his impressive multimedia installations with plush stuffed animals, which, understood as total works of art, encompass all aspects of his artistic personality.
