  • Glorious Catastrophe: Jack Smith, Performance and Visual Culture

    Glorious catastrophe presents a detailed critical analysis of the work of Jack Smith from the early 1960s until his AIDS-related death in 1989. Dominic Johnson argues that Smith's work offers critical strategies for rethinking art's histories after 1960. Heralded by peers as well as later generations of artists, Smith is an icon of the New York avant-garde. Nevertheless, he is conspicuously absent from dominant histories of American culture in the 1960s, as well as from narratives of the impact that decade would have on coming years.

  • Indiscretions - Avant-Garde Film, Video, and Feminism

    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.

  • Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller - Tell Me What You See

    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.

  • Fin De Tournage / Done With Filming

    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.

With reference to historical, critical, phenomenological and inter-disciplinary approaches, international researchers offer new and diverse methodologies for thinking through these myriad animation practices.
