Curated by Daniel A. Swarthnas and Larry Gottheim

Gottheim became, together with Michael Snow and Ernie Gehr, one of the America’s most prominent and leading ’structural’ avant-garde filmmakers in 1960s. From his late-1960s series of sublime ‘single-shot’ films to the dense sound/image constructs of the mid-1970s and after, his cinema is the cinema of presence, of observation, and of deep conscious engagement. While addressing genres of landscape, diary and assemblage filmmaking, Gottheim’s work properly stands alone in its intensive investigations of the paradoxes between direct, sensual experience in collision with complex structures of repetition, anticipation and memory.
