Pop art : the test of the object( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the Second World War came the birth of the consumer society. The American way of life, with its emphasis on growth, quantity, consumption and fun, dominated western values. But underneath, many of the same old dark forces raged on: war - Berlin, Korea, Vietnam; racial unrest; the political intolerance of the early 1950s. Among the young, new values awoke, and protest movements sprang up. While existing abstract painting in America - notably Jackson Pollock's - found itself floundering for ideas, Jasper Johns took notice of the object itself, setting his scenes with icons of the familiar and the everyday. The other great founder of Pop Art, Robert Rauschenberg, considered art as something closer to life - the world as one great painting. Meanwhile in California, another parallel track was emerging, based on the deconstruction of technology (Jim Dine), the nature of silence (John Cage), and Roy Lichtenstein's realization that the medium of the printed plate itself generated fertile subject matter - an art seated on the streetcorner, taking the fullest part in life. Suddenly sociological raw material had become art - Pop Art. There was Tom Wesselmann's American Humdrum, Claes Oldenberg's soda-pop themes - and, inevitably, Andy Warhol, who stuffed the banal images of America back down its throat and then took what was for many the ultimate step and made himself into a living, talking pop object. Yet Pop Art had a third track - for many, its real birthplace was England, where, even more than in California, the most prominent art form was always music. Richard Hamilton also took images from the everyday world, but never abandoned his sensitivity as a painter; nor, in a later period, does David Hockney. In England, Pop Art was never without its personal touch. The film also features the work of Klein, Tinguely, Cesar, Christo, Spoeri, Arman, Raysse and many others
Contemporaries - The Quest for Reality( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reality is what every artist searches for, but each artist has a different idea of what reality is. A Renaissance artist did not seek to capture the same reality as an Expressionist; and contemporary creators are just as divided in their quest. This film examines the work of widely differing artists today: men like George Segal, who makes highly detailed plaster casts of the bodies of his own friends, and Antonio Recalcati, who 'prints' real people directly on to canvas. There is Michelangelo Pistoletto, who captures the spectators of his work through mirrors so that they become part of the work of art themselves; Jean-Pierre Reynaud, with his linking of two 'psycho-objects' otherwise quite unrelated; and Gerard Titus-Carmel, who tells an interviewer that the reality of his work is the drawing on the paper - 'right, there is an image somewhere. But ... it's not the image I'm interested in. It's the sort of movement ... the way things get drawn.' Wolf Vostell, who immortalizes a car or a woman in cement, says that he is seeking to understand the current meaning of life for modern humankind. These, of course, are all Europeans; American 'hyper-realists' like Chuck Close, John de Andrea, Richard MacLean, Don Eddy, Malcolm Morley, Ralph Goings, Richard Estes and Robert Cottingham use photography in their work to juxtapose one reality against another in a 'showdown of visions.' In Spain, by contrast, Antonio Lopez Garcia has been setting up his easel every morning for years in Madrid's Gran Via, believing he must work from life for the sake of 'naturalness.' Hugo Pratt, comics artist and creator of Corto Maltese, tells an interviewer that comics, despised by academia, are a 'modern business' and 'dynamite' for formulating critical and political observation of current events. Jacques Monory works with photography, film and painting 'because if others don't look at me, I'm dead'; while Italian militant artist of the sixties Gianni Spadari has now given up his political struggles because 'in that voluntary commitment, I sacrificed a part of myself.' The film also features the work of Camille Bombois, Yves Klein, Jean-Olivier Hucleux, Peter Klasen, Vladimir Velickovic, Gerard Schlosser, Domenico Gnoli, Isabel Quintanilla, Claudio Bravo, Gilles Aillaud, Valerio Adami and others.

The Adventure: Artists on Art( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in Undetermined and English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Marcel Duchamp, as early as 1914, began exhibiting selected everyday objects - a urinal, a bottle-rack - as 'readymade' works of art, questions about how we define art and what its social function is have been central to all serious artists' concerns. Hosts of Conceptual artists have followed the lead of Duchamp, no longer painting or sculpting in traditional ways, but creating provocative 'gestures' and adopting 'strategies' for making their viewers think about the nature and role of art itself, and how it relates to the major concerns of our lives. In this film, Jorn Merckert of the Berlin Academie der Kunst, says: 'Because the human condition today has changed so much, and because there is no longer a system, one single system existing for everybody, giving each person his place, people have lost their identity, they've lost all definition of what they want to do in life and of what they can do in life. And it is there, in that context, that art first of all reflects that identity crisis. Subsequently, art makes us aware of that identity crisis. And finally, every now and then, art provides an answer as to how one might combat that identity crisis.' Artists whose work is looked at include Dutchman Anton Heyboer, who offers as an artistic statement his own taking of multiple 'wives'; Wolf Vostell, who strews a floor with knives, forks and barbed wire, in a reference to the Nazi concentration camps; Christo, whose seventy-five-mile Running Fence was erected across California; and Joseph Beuys, who notoriously gave a performance in which he tried to explain art to a dead rabbit. As bizarre as such works will seem to some, this film attempts a thought-provoking exploration of their implications.

Le fauvisme by Marie-Thérèse Caille( Visual )

6 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The style of painting known as Fauvism was born in 1905 in Paris during the Salon d'Autome exhibition where the works of Matisse, Marquet, Derain and Vlaminck were shown, and a wry critic named them "fauves," or "wild beasts." The Fauvist artists did not form a homogeneous school, but they all tended to use the energetic power of light and color in their work. This film follows the development of the fauvist style, concentrating on the work of Henri Matisse, the chief exponent of the movement and the artists who worked with him and influenced him

Expressionism by for Humanities Centre( Visual )

7 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in French and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces Expressionist trends across European and American art and in French artists such as Vlaminck and Derain early in the century. Finds that in Nordic countries, and especially Germany, expressionism is strongest. Affected by the anxieties of accelerated social change, and by the anguish of world wars and political upheaval, Expressionist artists employed violent exaggerations and distortions of form and color, and near-brutal handling of materials. In this art of pathos and anxiety, a Norwegian, Edward Munch, is said to be the focal point of the expressionist schools of the twentieth century. A number of his paintings are shown as well as scenes from the twentieth century, which his paintings seemed to foreshadow
