Peter Gidal was born in 1946 and grew up in Switzerland. After studying psychology and German literature at Brandeis University and Munich University, he started at the Royal College of Art in London. It was also here that he seriously started his film career. In the 1960s his films appeared on the New Arts Lab in Drury Lane and the London Film Maker Co-op, which he also helped establish.
In the 1960s, WERNER NEKES (1944-2017) began making films and experimenting with different film stocks to scale the possibilities of the medium. Free from narrative and psychological aspects, the films are organized according to temporal units and structural systems as they focus on aspects of representation. In a direct dialogue to pre-cinematographic optical techniques – with different ways to create illusion of movement - Nekes referred to his films as ”light theater”.
