Figures of Absence. The Films of DORE O.
|Author||Masha Matzke ed.|
Aiming at a long-overdue reappraisal of Dore O.’s avant-garde film practice, this publication honours the work and legacy of one of Germany’s most experimental filmmakers. In the 1960s, the painter Dore O. became one of the first and few women in Germany to turn to experimental film in such a consistent and self-determined way. She was actively involved in exploring new forms of cinema while developing her own signature, tone, and film methodology. 'Figures of Absence' exposes the formal rigour and inventiveness as well as the cultural connotations and historical ramifications of a cinematic vision that has been relegated to the purely personal, diaristic, and even nonintellectual realms.
