Gunvor Nelson and the Avant-Garde
2003 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Despite the fact that Swedish-American film-maker Gunvor Nelson has been one of the most significant women in the avant-garde film tradition since the mid-60s there has been no comprehensive overview of her work and its various contexts. At last the publication of Gunvor Nelson and the Avant-Garde fills the gap. The essays in the book are divided into four parts which offer four contexts for exploring the audiovisual connections to the work of Gunvor Nelson: conceptual mappings regarding the avant-garde and the avant-garde tradition; historical contexts in the USA and in Sweden; contemporary practices in production and distribution; the films of Gunvor Nelson in relation to the American Avant-Garde as well as her video works since the 90s. The book closes with an extensive interview with Nelson herself.
