Robert Beavers (born 1949) is considered one of the most important representatives of American experimental film. The themes of his films crystallize from his study of literature, philosophy, visual arts, music and architecture; But they also come from spontaneous visual experiences or are inspired by ideas that occupy the filmmaker for long periods of time.
Initiated by members of Knowledge Is A Does (KIAD) and with special contributions by Rory Pilgrim, Brendan Curtis and Sarah Browne, we present a selection of videos, performance- and sound based works. Disassemblies 9, a reading group and evening programme, explores Vanessa Agard-Jones’ theory on bodies in systems, which she defines as a movement directing us from the innards of embodiment to the space of global capital.
Tonight’s program derives from a five-part series curated by Taiwan International Documentary Festival (TIDF), with support from the Taiwan Film Institute. In 2016, curators at TIDF conducted an exhaustive search for Taiwan’s experimental films of the 1960s, unearthing a striking body of largely forgotten works.
