The films of Bill Morrison: Aesthetics of the Archive

Rating: 

No votes yet

Avant-garde filmmaker Bill Morrison has been making films that combine archival footage and contemporary music for decades, and he has recently begun to receive substantial recognition: he was the subject of a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, and his 2002 film Decasia was selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. This is the first book-length study of Morrison's work, covering the whole of his career. It gathers specialists throughout film studies to explore Morrison's "aesthetics of the archive"-his creative play with archival footage and his focus on the materiality of the medium of film.

Bernd Herzogenrath teaches American literature and culture at Goethe University of Frankfurt/Main, Germany. He is the author of An American Body|Politic: A Deleuzian Approach and editor of numerous collections, a.o. two books on Tod Browning, and two books on Edgar G. Ulmer.
