Kunsthall Oslo is very pleased to present the work of the renowned American filmmaker Barbara Hammer to a Norwegian audience for the first time.
Barbara Hammer will introduce her work and the Kunsthall Oslo retrospective with a talk, "Hammer! Making Movies Out of Sex and Life", on Friday Novermber 29th at 7pm.
For over four decades, Barbara Hammer (born 1939) has been making formally experimental and culturally groundbreaking films exploring cinema, biography, history and sexuality. She has made more than eighty film and video works, and Kunsthall Oslo will present a selection of work ranging from the 1970s until today. Her breakthrough 1974 film Dyketactics has been called “the first lesbian lovemaking film made by a lesbian” and the Museum of Modern Art in New York describes her as one of the key experimental filmmakers of her generation. A review of Hammer’s recent Tate retrospective concluded: “It’s glorious, all this fresh energy.”
