Werner Nekes, one of Germany's top experimental artists died last January 22, aged 72 in his home.

Nekes was particularly active as an experimental filmmaker during the late 60s and 70s. His films screened world-wide and were honored wiith a multitude of prizes and awards. At the same time he became more and more entangled in a growing passion of collecting pre-cinema optical devices ultimately ending up as a preeminent collector who frequently used these devices in his later essay-style films.
