Born in Lithuania in 1922, Jonas Mekas has made over 80 films, videos and installations since his arrival in New York in 1949. Each piece is inventoried and accompanied by an image, a list of public collections and distributors, the technical data and one or several short texts summarizing the content of the work.

Presented in chronological order, the work of Jonas Mekas can be appreciated in its entirety, the book serves both as a complete inventory and a research tool of his work. Films, videos, or audiovisual installations are all proposals that express the "I filmed" of the filmmaker and his celebration of everyday life.

The catalogue raisonné is preceded by a foreword by Pip Chodorov, one of the best connoisseurs of the work of Jonas Mekas. It is accompanied by a text by two young film historians placing the work of Jonas Mekas in its historical context and its stylistic evolution.

The book is the first of a new collection by Paris Expérimental, "Outils  / Tools", dedicated to research tools in the history of experimental cinema. It is simultaneously publishing an index of the Film Culture magazine, founded and directed by Jonas Mekas in New York from 1955 to 1996.

The catalog raisonné, which receives support from the National Centre for Visual Arts, is published on the occasion of 90 years of the artist and of his complete works, presented in autumn 2012 at the Centre Pompidou.
