  • Jean-Michel Bouhours on Paolo Gioli

    Editions Light Cone is pleased to announce the publication of its first ebook: Jean-Michel Bouhours on Paolo Gioli. Benefitting from the new power of ebooks to integrate video with text, the first title in this new series from Editions Light Cone has been conceived as a dialogue between two important voices in contemporary moving image art. 

    Collected in a single volume, and illustrated by extracts from Paolo Gioli's films, are essays and notes written over a twenty year period by Jean-Michel Bouhours, currently a curator of Modern Collections at the Musée national d’art moderne - Centre Pompidou in Paris. For many years, Bouhours directed the museum’s film programme and has long been an active member of Light Cone.

  • Claudio Caldini: Experimental Films 1975-1982

    "Caldini emphasizes the idea of cinema as an activity of absolutely direct vision—an idea that, far from reclaimed by certain realist agendas, has always been, consciously or not, at the heart of the avant-garde."

    "Anyone who has seen Caldini in action can confirm that his work environment privileges calm over agitation and reflection over continuous action. His body of work, based on anti-despair, appears eternal, dematerialized, and transcendent in the sense that its virtues and its beauty seem to reach far and beyond, and it seems to have existed since the beginning of time."

  • “We Support Everything since the Dawn of Time That Has Struggled and Still Struggles”. Introduction to Lettrist Cinema

    The Lettrist movement is unique in the history of avant-garde formations. Founded by Isidore Isou in Paris immediately after World War II, it remains active to this day, having lost none of its radicalism, either aesthetic or ethical. In this book, Nicole Brenez presents the key figures and the basic concepts of Lettrist cinema, the art form within which their formal innovations proved the most far-reaching, prefiguring the breakthroughs of the nouvelle vague and the experiments of expanded cinema.

  • Michael Snow - Rameau's Nephew by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen

    Each of Michael Snow's works, spanning across painting, sculpture, video, film, photography, holography, drawing, publishing and music, invites us to experience, question and contemplate the representation, its process and material. Rameau's Nephew by Diderot (Thanx to Dennis Young) by Wilma Schoen illustrates his research both in the visual arts and in sound: "For me, it is an authentic 'talking picture,' built from the true units of the syllable and the frame. All the possible image/sound relationships centering around people and speech generate the movie-audience relationships: a wide range of emotional possibilities; the experience of seeing/hearing this film. 'Speech,' 'Language,' 'Culture' - their sources, their nature... recorded, imaged, prove (?) that in this case a word is worth 1000 pictures.

  • On the Eve of the Future. Selected Writings on Film

    The celebrated critic and film scholar Annette Michelson saw the avant-garde filmmakers of the 1950s and 1960s as radically redefining and extending the Modernist tradition of painting and sculpture, and in essays that were as engaging as they were influential and as lucid as they were learned, she set out to demonstrate the importance of the underappreciated medium of film. On the Eve of the Future collects more than thirty years’ worth of those essays, focusing on her most relevant engagements with avant-garde production in experimental cinema, particularly with
