More New and Used
from Private Sellers
This spirited work commemorates the opening of the EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam in spring 2012. Found Footage, the first exhibition in the new building, takes as its theme the museum's vast and valuable collection and shows how filmmakers and artists repurpose recent and historical footage to create new works: older narrative structures are unraveled to create new stories, images are recontextualized to produce new meaning, and different edits of the film footage are used to highlight new political or emotional significances. A beautifully illustrated and constructed volume, Found Footagereveals the power of film to be reused and recycled to create endless new pieces of art.
