  • Stan Brakhage - Anticipation of the Night

    DVD/Blu-Ray combo with the film 'Anticipation of the Night' by Stan Brakhage

  • "Our Kind of Movie" The Films of Andy Warhol

    Andy Warhol was a remarkably prolific filmmaker, creating more than 100 movies and nearly 500 of the film portraits known as Screen Tests. And yet relatively little has been written about this body of work. Warhol withdrew his films from circulation in the early 1970s and it was only after his death in 1987 that they began to be restored and shown again. With “Our Kind of Movie” Douglas Crimp offers the first single-authored book about the full range of Andy Warhol’s films in forty years--and the first since the films were put back into circulation.

  • Kontraste Cahier #3: Vertical Cinema

    You hear it everywhere: Cinema is tipping over – its epic and dramatic forms are spilling over into television, avant-garde and experimental films have fled to the galleries, and all the images that once belonged to it are now available everywhere, anytime. At the Austrian Film Museum, we tend to refrain from such sweeping and simple-minded swan songs. For this very reason, we are honoured to participate in Vertical Cinema – a project committed to taking one step at a time. Instead of trying to tip cinema in its entirety into the digital netherworld, this project is content with just tipping the screen – observing how an artform changes if you respectfully chafe at its edges.’  – Alexander Horwath, Director of the Austrian Film Museum

  • Friedl Kubelka Vom Gröller - One Is Not Enough. Photography & Film

    Book + DVD + Magazine

    The heart of Friedl Kubelka’s photographic work (who as a filmmaker goes by the name of Friedl vom Gröller) is constituted by portraiture – whether she captures friends, acquaintances, family members, filmmakers, artists or simply clients, each for the most part gazing directly into the camera. Since 1972 to the present, Kubelka has also placed herself in front of the camera for her project Jahresportraits (Year’s Portraits) in which she mercilessly documents the process of aging. It has become the structural credo of Kubelka’s artistic practice to juxtapose the individual photograph with many other photographs.

  • Dietmar Brehm - Black Garden

    The moods of his films resemble an atmosphere between the dream and trauma. Brehm treats the dream as a source of strategies for association, similar to the secondary process to which according to Freud all the workings of the unconscious are subject. Die
