UbuWeb is a sprawling website devoted to experimental poetry, art, music, and any other creative genre you can think of. Thousands of works, interviews, etc. are inlcuded, from the seminal to the obscure. Hear interviews with Marcel Duchamp and John Cage, watch digitized films by Jonas Mekas, Joseph Beuys, and Maya Deren, and watch videos of Samuel Beckett plays.

From the UbuWeb faq page:

“When did UbuWeb Start?
UbuWeb was founded in November of 1996, initially as a repository for visual, concrete and, later, sound poetry. Over the years, UbuWeb has embraced all forms of the avant-garde and beyond. Its parameters continue to expand in all directions.”

“Can I use something posted on UbuWeb on my site, in a paper, in a project, etc.?
Sure. We post many things without permission; we also post many with things with permission. We therefore give you permission to take what you like even though in many cases, we have no received permission to post it. We went ahead and did it anyway. You should too.”

They also have a manifesto.
