Emerging from New York’s Lower East Side in the city’s early 1980s No Wave scene, the “Cinema of Transgression” aimed at outright shock, provocation and confrontation. Young filmmakers such as Richard Kern, Lydia Lunch, Kembra Pfahler, Casandra Stark and Nick Zedd produced nihilistic, nightmarish scenarios of violence, angst and erotic excess that willfully transcended all moral or aesthetic boundaries. Sometimes shot with stolen camera equipment, and flaunting their lo-fi credentials, the low-budget films of the self-proclaimed “Cinema of Transgression” presented analyses of a Lower East Side defined by criminality, brutality, drugs, AIDS, sex and excess. You Killed Me First is published on the occasion of the first exhibition on the Cinema of Transgression.

Book Description Walther König Feb 2012, 2012. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Albtraumhafte Gewaltszenarien, dramatische Seelenzustände, perverse sexuelle Abgründe: Die bewusst auf Schock, Provokation und Konfrontation angelegten Filme des Cinema of Transgression zeugen von einer außergewöhnlichen Radikalität. In den 1980er Jahren ging eine Gruppe von Filmemachern in der New Yorker Lower East Side auf Kollisionskurs mit der amerikanischen Gesellschaft. Alle moralischen und ästhetischen Grenzen überschreitend, enthüllten sie in ihren Filmen eine soziale Härte, die auf gesellschaftspolitische Gleichgültigkeit trifft. In den teilweise mit geklautem Kameraequipment gedrehten Low-Budget-Filmen manifestieren sich scharfe Analysen des von Kriminalität, Brutalität, Drogen, Aids, Sex und Exzessen geprägten Lebens in der Lower East Side. Nightmarish scenarios of violence, dramatic states of mind, and perverse sexual abysses the films of the Cinema of Transgression that were consciously aimed at shock, provocation, and confrontation, bear witness to an extraordinary radicality. In the 1980s a group of filmmakers from the Lower East Side in New York went on a collision course with the conventions of American society. Transcending all moral or aesthetic boundaries, the low budget films reveal social hardship met with sociopolitical indifference. Sometimes shot with stolen camera equipment, the films contain strident analyses of life in the Lower East Side defined by criminality, brutality, drugs, AIDS, sex, and excess. The catalogue is published on the occasion of the worldwide first exhibition on the Cinema of Transgression, YOU KILLED ME FIRST at KW Institute of Contemporary Art in Berlin. The catalogue includes contributions by Sylvère Lotringer, Carlo McCormick, Jonas Mekas, Susanne Pfeffer, Jack Sargeant and Nick Zedd. 176 pp. Englisch, Deutsch. Seller Inventory # 9783863351571
