Total runtime 90min

In an age in which Hollywood chases after fragmented audiences, Huillet and Straub’s films constitute an aesthetic re-education of the senses that demands undivided attention from viewers. In this introductory lecture, artist and theorist Kodwo Eshun argues that the aesthetic politics of the collaborators’ cinema emerges from their ongoing commitment to the project and practice of materialist intensification.
