New book on Maya Schweizer's moving image works and complex montage aesthetics, with six essays.
This first trilingual monograph by the French artist based in Berlin highlights the idea of the film-monument that underlies her latest film and video realizations. The book reflects the spirit of her work by exploring four recent films, which are all variations on the question of memory and its cinematographic representation. The new contributions of six authors provide an in-depth insight into the films and an introduction to Maya Schweizer's work.
