DESCRIPTION

This latest installment of the Forum series features filmic “portraits” by Irish artist Duncan Campbell. Each of the films unravels historical narrative by way of one fascinating protagonist—including eminent German bureaucrat Hans Tietmeyer, a key player in Europe’s economic centralization; iconic Irish Republican civil rights activist and MP Bernadette Devlin; and legendary carmaker John DeLorean. Based in the conviction that documentary is only a “peculiar form of fiction,” Campbell’s beautifully composed films bring together archival material and original footage, “authentic” documents and interpretive elements, to present nuanced and imaginative depictions of their subjects.

Duncan Campbell is the 68th installment of Carnegie Museum of Art’s Forum series.
