Dóra Maurer once said that the theme central to her work is “movement in respect to the conceptual and factual effects of displacement”. And indeed, her extensive oeuvre produced since the end of the 1960s consistently documents movement and displacement, specifically with regard to systematics and structurality.

According to Viennese filmmaker Gustav Deutsch, “film is more than film.” His own career proves that point. In addition to being an internationally acclaimed creator of found footage films, he is also a visual artist, an architect, a researcher, an educat
Ken Jacobs has been making cinema for more than fifty years. Along with over thirty film and video works, he has created an array of shadow plays, sound pieces, installations, and magic lantern and film performances that have transformed how we look at and think about moving images. He is part of the permanent collections at MoMA and the Whitney, and his work has been celebrated in Europe and the U.S. While his importance is well-recognized, this is the first volume dedicated entirely to him.
In Azul Profundo Sebastian Wiedemann plunges into the transorganic space of Blue, a cinematic state of complete communion with the depths of Nature’s cosmological memory. Blue as guideline into a cinema of receptive profusion and total connection with one's intrinsic sensorial capacities. Deep Blue as cinematic wild experience and experiment of thinking, as a radical adventure into the potential of an unexpected speculative scenario where the verb to blue gains uncountable affective tonalities.

Bart Vegter (1940-2011) was self-taught and derived his primary inspiration from the methods of filmmakers such as Frans Zwartjes and Paul de Mol, and experimental cinema from the 1970s and 1980s.

However, his last few films such as Nacht-Licht [Night Light], Space-Modulation and Forest-Views display a more idiosyncratic style attributable to the software he wrote.
DVD with 15 films by Storm De Hirsch. Second release of re:voir's New York Film-makers' Cooperative Collection.
A major work in terms of style, structure, graphic invention, image manipulation and symbolic ritual. Short abbreviated dream-like moments, fused together by the tension and the dynamic of motion-picture time.
Il s'agit de l'étude la plus complète à ce jour des relations entre peinture et cinéma dans les années 1920. Des artistes et poètes (Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, Malévitch, Léger, Artaud, Moholy-Nagy, Ruttmann, Desnos...) font du cinéma un chantier d'expériences. Le cinéma se fait ainsi cubiste, dadaïste, abstrait, constructiviste, surréaliste... Les notions d'avant-garde, d'expérience et d'expérimentation se trouvent donc revisitées.
