In Person            Lewis Klahr


One of the most important collage filmmakers of the American avant-garde, Klahr uses cut-outs from a range of mass culture print and sound sources, as well as more singular artifacts such as found photographs, objects, and images that he shot himself. He has made over sixty films, ranging from shorts of a few minutes, to long-form series and feature-length works. Taken as a whole, Klahr's body of work can be seen as a kind of private archive of transitional moments in twentieth-century American culture. This program focuses on how his films conjure the most ephemeral and enigmatic aspects of the past. Jeffrey Skoller
