Arnulf Rainer

7' - 1960
Director: Peter Kubelka
What we have here is something like a data compression of Luigi Russolo/Kazimir Malevich/Lászlo Moholy-Nagy/Yves Klein. Behold
24 years before Hanatarsh. 21 years before Incapacitants. 19 before Merzbow. 17 before Theoretical Girls. 15 before NON. 12 before Tony Conrad’s Yellow Movies. 6 before The Flicker. A few years before the early black plus white experiments by Conrad, Mario Montez, and Jack Smith. And unknowingly concurrent with Takehisa Kosugi and Yasunao Tone’s Group Ongaku (1960). Along came this bolt of lightning. What we have here is something like a data compression of Luigi Russolo/Kazimir Malevich/Lászlo Moholy-Nagy/Yves Klein. Behold. (C.W. Winter)
