 - 1,2,3… Avant-Gardes
The ongoing history of the experiment in film and art: two decades of experiments in Polish avant-garde film.
1,2,3… Avant-Gardes is dedicated to the ongoing history of the experiment in film and art. This book describes and analyses the works of filmmakers and artists, defining two decades of experiments in Polish avant-garde film, and juxtaposes their work with contributions by international artists, who started to work during the last fifteen years. The outstanding history of Polish experimental film, represented by the work of Bogdan Dziworski, Paweł Kwiek, Natalia LL, Józef Robakowski, Stefan and Franciszka Themerson, and many others, is presented in an archive containing descriptions of more than 30 films of the Polish avant-garde between 1920–1970 and organized around six themes: Analytical Strategies, Political Film (Soc Art), Sound and Image, Imagination, Games and Participation, and Consumption.

Artist pages by Pawel Althamer and , Bernadette Corporation, Matthew Buckingham, Judith Hopf and Katrin Pesch, Igor Krenz, Jonathan Monk, Jeroen deRijke/Willem de Rooij, and Wilhelm Sasnal complete this compendium as a contribution toward an extended examination of the history and practice of experimental filmmaking and art.
