INDEX012 GUSTAV DEUTSCH - Film ist. (1-12) / DVD-version




Indeed, Film ist. is a film with which to open our eyes and to renew our faith in cinema. Anytime you become bored, tired or repeatedly disappointed by what it has to offer, this is exactly the piece to put on. Through the simplest of things it manages to reconfirm just how magical the moving image can be. (Anthony Nield/The Digital Fix)

Deutsch combines tons of archaic film material and the result is exhilarating, interesting, funny and often extremely beautiful. (Maikel Aarts/DVD Beaver)


(Brian Marley/The Wire)

26.11.2014. NEW DVD!!!





Peter Weibels performances differentiate themselves from other actions performed in the 1960s, for instance in Vienna and California, firstly, through their relation to media and secondly, through their relation to politics.
His body politics is body critique that is simultaneously a critique of traditional forms of representation as well as identity politics. Unlike classical body artists Weibel did not only search for the emancipation of the body, for instance through the sexual revolution but liberation from the body in the age of its constructability via media and gene technology.
(Peter Weibel)

memoryPROJECTS





Part Time Heroes (2007, color, 33 min)
Running Sushi (2008, color, 28 min)
Burning Palace (2009, color, 32 min)

These films are based on choreographic works by LIQUID LOFT.

These three films made in collaboration with the choreographer Chris Haring are explorations of performative processes and filmic narration.
Haring stages his productions in bare spaces, from which Mattuschka makes films which correspond to cinematic rules of setting and dramaturgy. She extends her perspective as a painter into her cinematic approach. Up-close views of the body, from below, from above. Views which distort perspective. With digital retouching, she designs places, architectures, and spatialities.
