  • Then and Now: Carolee Schneemann – Œuvres d’Histoire

  • Conscious Hallucinations - Filmic Surrealism

    The exhibition’s catalogue assembles the results of the worldwide research into surrealist films in images and text and presents the ways in which filmic surrealism has been diffused. The publication thus comes to grips with subjects that have thus far only marginally been dealt with and collects them in a compendium of filmic surrealism. In this way the visitors to the exhibition are offered further reading for enrichment and the professional academic public is provided with the stimulus for further fruitful activity.

  • Installation and the Moving Image

    Film and video create an illusory world, a reality elsewhere, and a material presence that both dramatizes and demystifies the magic trick of moving pictures. Beginning in the 1960s, artists have explored filmic and televisual phenomena in the controlled environments of galleries and museums, drawing on multiple antecedents in cinema, television, and the visual arts. This volume traces the lineage of moving-image installation through architecture, painting, sculpture, performance, expanded cinema, film history, and countercultural film and video from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

  • The Films of Roger Jacoby Volume 1

    This dvd is a collection of the early experimental short films of Roger Jacoby. Originally a painter, Roger Jacoby began making experimental film in New York City in the 1960s. For both aesthetic and financial reasons he began to process his own film footage in the bathtub of his darkened bathroom. After receiving an NEA grant in 1974 he was able to buy a simple processing machine. By maintaining control of the processing, and by using an 'outdated' Auricon camera, Jacoby was able to weave texture, color and sound in a highly dramatic way. Many of his films contain the sounds of opera, images of family and often feature his lover of many years, Warhol superstar Ondine. Roger was immortalized in a portrait painted by Alice Neel, the canvas is titled "Rose Fried's Nephew". Roger Jacoby died November 19, 1985 at the age of 40.
