  • Werner Nekes (1944-2017)

    By on

    Werner Nekes, one of Germany's top experimental artists died last January 22, aged 72 in his home.

    Nekes was particularly active as an experimental filmmaker during the late 60s and 70s. His films screened world-wide and were honored wiith a multitude of prizes and awards. At the same time he became more and more entangled in a growing passion of collecting pre-cinema optical devices ultimately ending up as a preeminent collector who frequently used these devices in his later essay-style films.

  • LVA 40

    By on

    2016 marks both the 50th anniversary of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) and the 40th anniversary of London Video Arts (LVA) – two predecessor organisations of LUX. To celebrate 50 years of artists’ moving image practice in the UK, LUX has organised a year-long, multi-venue programme of screenings, talks, workshops, publications and other events.

    LUX also invited the first-year students of MRes Art: Moving Image, Central Saint Martins, London to contribute to this programme by curating and designing an online exhibition in response to the joint LFMC and LVA anniversary year.  While many of the anniversary events have revisited the historical activity and legacy of the LFMC, the students decided to use this opportunity to focus on LVA, acting as a "small yet enthusiastic counterpoint to the core programme by drawing from the wealth of LVA tapes in LUX’s video archive."

  • New Experimental Film Society Website

    By on

    I am delighted to announce the relaunch of the Experimental Film Society website. Boasting a brand new design by freelance web developer Ciarán Hickey, it covers every aspect of EFS activity: newseventsprojects, comprehensive member profiles. It is also the main platform for our Video On Demand catalogue where over forty feature and medium length films are available to stream or download. The site also features links to our online journal EFS Publications and to an archive of all past news. We have added a subscription facility, so you can sign up for automatic updates on our screening events, and a donate button for anyone wishing to help support our creative activities. A big thank you to the amazing Ciarán Hickey for his superb design and all the work he put into creating this site from scratch.

    Happy browsing! –Rouzbeh Rashidi
