Experimental Cinema in Switzerland. About 30 films are screened in various sizes and formats
The exhibition presents a wide panorama of genre practices within the medium of cinema more specifically, but also video work, from the 1960s to today. Through formal interventions directly on the celluloid, various in-situ installations, unconventional documentaries, and political, feminist, animated, and fiction films, all these artists challenged the traditional codes of cinema. The main space of the art center is transformed into a large black box in which about 30 films are screened in various sizes and formats, from 16mm reels to digital projections. In the midst of this immersive installation of image and sound, the viewer experiences this hidden part of history anew. Artists include ECART (John Armleder & al.), Robert Beavers, Jean-Luc Godard, Veronique Goel, Peter Liechti, Bernhard Luginbuhl, Urs Luthi, Gregory J. Markopoulos, Dieter Meier, Tony Morgan, Fredi Murer, Dieter Roth, Carole Roussopoulos, HHK Schoenherr, Daniel Spoerri, Peter Stampfli, and many more... Curated by Francois Bovier and Balthazar Lovay.
