Selected Video Works. 1970-1991

New York: Anthology Film Archives, 1991. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's green textured stiff paper wraps lettered in black.

Filmography of French filmmaker and videographer Auder, published to accompany a series dedicated to his work at New York's Anthology Film Archives. Auder got his start as a video artist under the influence of Andy Warhol, and was married first to Warhol superstar Viva, then photographer Cindy Sherman. His diaristic, improvisatory films blend fiction and documentary, and "are populated with some of the most conspicuous affiliates of the New York downtown art/theater/performance scene." "Auder doesn't educate, doesn't teach, doesn't inform. When he makes 'political' statements, they don't come from any party or wing or fashion: they come from his heart. He likes to look at things, reality, people. He is a voyeur par excellence..." (from the introduction by filmmaker and Anthology founder Jonas Mekas). Illustrated throughout with numerous black-and-white film stills; with detailed notes and selected videography and bibliography. Fine. Item #543
