The focus presents a retrospective about Peter Tscherkassky, in conversation with the curator and film historian Federico Rossin, around the idea of Found Footage as a peculiar film technique to explore media imagery as a resource to be raided and reused. Found Footage belongs to that tradition of modernist art , such as the dadaistic readymade and photomontage, for instance, that is using collage as a deconstructive technique to rethink reality and its media representations. In apprehending consumer culture, Found Footage operates a détournement upon reality. A specific form of cinematic and photographically-based appropriation that tends to contrast dominant imagery by creating counter images and filmic subordinates.
Fracto presents it in a 2-night all analog program.
