Glorious catastrophe presents a detailed critical analysis of the work of Jack Smith from the early until his AIDS-related death in 1989.

Nevertheless, he is conspicuously absent from dominant histories of American culture in the , as well as from narratives of the impact that decade would have on coming years.
Indiscretions follows the path of U.S. avant-garde film and video from the underground of the 1960s to the academy of the 1980s. Patricia Mellencamp traces and charts the intersections of Lacanian psychoanalysis and the desiring male subject, Roland Barthes and texts of pleasure, Michel Foucault and the disciplinary society, the grotesque body and Mikhail Bakhtin, the rhizomatic alogic of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, and the female subject of feminist film theory.
The work of these two German artists, Christoph Girardet (* 1966) and Matthias Müller (* 1961), is of outstanding importance for filmic and video art. The publication offers, for the first time, in-depth insights into the joint filmic and photographic oeuvre of these two artists. Girardet and Müller have been working in continuous collaboration for more than 14 years now, primarily on the basis of filmic material already in existence (found footage), from which they produce associative/narrative compositions.

Done with Filming is the title of a film made by Maurice Lemaître between 1985 – 1990. It is composed of a collection of slides, primarily from New Wave films, on which the artist has intervened in multiple ways: with touch-ups, smudges, and graphic and visual interventions. Simultaneously, the soundtrack consists of a fake journalistic-style interview in which Lemaître, in his characteristic manner that is both serious and humorous, gives an account of his relationship with cinema, criticism, and creation.
This book discusses developments and continuities in experimental animation that, since Robert Russet and Cecile Starr’s Experimental Animation: Origins of a New Art (1976), has proliferated in the context of expanded cinema, performance and live ‘making’ and is today exhibited in galleries, public sites and online. With reference to historical, critical, phenomenological and inter-disciplinary approaches, international researchers offer new and diverse methodologies for thinking through these myriad animation practices.
