Rare Film Programme for Fraitz Lang's 1927 Masterpiece

"The world's most valuable movie poster, for Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece Metropolis, is to be auctioned again after making a record $690,000 in 2005. Ephemera related to the film is notoriously scarce, with only four copies of the poster known to survive. Almost as uncommon is this amazing film programme produced for the London premiere at the Marble Arch Pavilion on March 21, 1927, one of only three copies that we have handled. Not only a list of cast and crew, it includes eleven short pieces on the making of the movie, commentary from the director and cast, and numerous production photographs and film stills, many attractively arranged as modernist collages. One of the most interesting sections shows in parallel columns how a passage of film scenes was adapted from the novel of the same name by Lang's wife, Thea von Harbou."

Bellon & Marker: Remembrance of Things To Come

"[Denise] Bellon’s daughter Yannick and Chris Marker collaborated to create a biographical portrait of Bellon using news footage, narration and her own photography. The result is Remembrance of Things To Come (2001, 42 minutes, black and white, English), a detailed time line of the peaks and valleys of twentieth–century Europe as seen through the eyes of an artist. The film’s fluid stream of black and white images and newsreels is mesmerizing. As Bellon’s work focused on surrealist art, sports, the human body and "exotic" locales such as Africa, the film’s deliberate mix of photographs and moving images operates both as a loving homage to its subject and as free–standing work of exquisite cinematic art."

Object Memory Archive: A Structured-repository Of Personal Objects

"OMA is an internet–based project to which users can make audio–visual contributions, and navigate and view their own and other people's entries. These entries can be interactively arranged according to various semantic categories. The purpose is an easily accessible distributed platform for everyone who wants to archive and share important events in their life where such events are associated with specific objects. These objects then become the place–holders and psycho–physical focus for the events and memories that are precious to us."
(Agnes Hegedüs)

OMA is a QUT artist–in–residence work by Agnes Hegedus, created in collaboration with Grace Peng, Johanes Soetanto, Dave Wallace.

The "Object Memory Archive" is a project created by Agnes Agnes Hegedüs as an on–line development of her earlier works "Their Things Spoken" and "Things Spoken".
