Pop art : the test of the object ( visu )
4 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and held by 66 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

The origins of art in France ( visu )
4 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and held by 56 libraries worldwide
Bringing together an unprecedented range of artefacts - jewels, animals in stone, carved figures and heads, abstract decorations on standing stones and primitive architecture - this film presents Celtic art in the context of Gallic civilization as a whole. The poetic and penetrating narrative by Max-Pol Fouchet stresses the art's supernatural roots in Druidic cults of gods, goddesses and heroes. For the Celts, we are told, 'the spirit and the head are inseparable,' and 'eternity is in the gaze.' Theirs is 'a religion of spiritual intensity,' of 'transcendence,' concerned with forces beyond human control. Fouchet hints at how the reduction of artistic forms to their expressive essentials relates to Scandinavian art of the period, to the distant oriental connections of the Celtic peoples, and indeed to modern Cubism and Abstraction. In Gallic art, we learn, abstraction and representation co-exist and merge. Fouchet's narration accompanies mesmeric sequences of intricate metalwork, ornaments, charms, 'souvenirs,' helmets (symbols of the French 'Gauloise' cigarette), and shots of desolate fortresses, tombs, and above all gazing, timeless heads. We learn how Gallic culture developed against the backdrop of a yet more ancient prehistory, recorded in cromlechs and stone circles that the sculptor Rodin came to consider 'the predecessors to the great Gothic cathedrals.' We learn too how, with the coming of the Romans, Romano-Gallic art extended to the building of bridges, aqueducts and ornamented, columned façades. It is thus out of an extremely rich brew of cultures that French art evolves
