Details

The Undercut Reader: Critical Writings on Artists' Film and Video is a collection of writing and visual works drawn from Undercut, the only UK magazine dedicated to artists' film and video from 1980 to 1990, combined with newly-commissioned articles by leading critics in the field. Undercut critically explored the aesthetics and politics of film and video practices within the context of visual arts and independent cinema. While artists' film and video has become one of the most popular and compelling practices today, very little published material is available. This anthology thus provides a much needed context for the debates and practices of film and video in both the independent film sector and the visual arts. The Undercut Reader explores themes of narrative and representation, feminist perspectives, questions of identity, film form, cultural and gay politics, experimental animation, landscape imagination and aesthetics. It includes writing by, and on, Stuart Hood, Michael O'Pray, Sally Potter, Peter Gidal, Malcolm le Grice, Peter Wollen, Laura Mulvey, Peter Kennard, Valie Export, Mona Hatoum, Patrick Keiller, The Straubs, Richard Long, John Hilliard, David Curtis, Christine Delphy, Isaac Julien, Ian Christie, Jacqueline Rose, Susan Hiller, Derek Jarman, Stan Brakhage and Cerith Wyn Evans.
