From Heritage Space:
ONCE more – but DIFFERENT
On the development of Found-Footage Films
The artistic tradition of using existing or found material is not a phenomenon of the digital internet environment, but has been a continuous and strong strand in artistic practice since the beginning of the 20th century. It spans from Marcel Duchamp’s legendary appropriation of a urinal in his work Fountain (1917) to the remarkable photo-collage works by John Heartfield, to the works by the so-called ‘picture generation’, to more recent works by Gerhard Richter, Louise Lawler or Sherrie Levine.
The notion of using found objects to create art spreads not only into the fields of photography, sculpture, printing and painting but also into the cinema world. The technique of re-using and appropriating existing film materials came into practice approximately 40 years after the birth of cinema in 1895.
This lecture will take a closer look at the development of films made from found footage from their earliest appearances and a number of examples in recent years. It is part of the event series FilmStoryTeller One Year Anniversary hosted by Heritage Space.
