Filmperformance with Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver
50 years after the 1968 movement the Goethe-Institut Tokyo presents a series of symposia, exhibitions, workshops, as well as a film series, and asks at what point do our societies stand today?
On three dates we present three different film performances and talks with the artists.
This time we present Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver.
Known as a legendary hippie in the 1960s, Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver has made a name for himself since the 1970s as a genre-spanning artist - active in painting, sculpture, photography, performance and installation. At the center of this evening are Gulliver's films from the second half of the 60s. These works radically question how time and form are captured on film by the camera at 24 frames per second, and how a visual space is created by the elements 'light', 'projector', 'screen' and 'viewer'. They thus subject the structure and working conditions of the medium film to a fundamental test. As part of this process, not only completely new forms of expression arise, but also events that fundamentally shake up the principles of the medium of film. At the Goethe-Institut "Switch" and "Box" will be shown as live performances.
