Description

This screening event will feature 16mm films by Wolf Vostell and other Fluxus filmmakers.

Frames of Resistance explores these artists’ use of film as political interventions into the built environment and the media landscape. The selection of films to be screened by Vostell were proposed by the artist to be shown during his visit to the MCA in January 1970 when he supervised the production of Concrete Traffic—including Sun in Your Head (1963) and Starfighter (1967).

Presented by UChicago Arts, the Department of Cinema and Media Studies, and the Film Studies Center.
