Anemic Cinema (1926) by Marcel Duchamp

"This characteristically dada film by Marcel Duchamp consists of a series of visual and verbal puns with nonsense phrases inscribed around rotating spiral patterns, creating an almost hypnotic effect. Silent.

Anemic Cinema (various versions were made in 1920, 1923 and, finally, in 1926). Essentially a film by Duchamp with help from Man Ray. Calvin Tomkins: 'Duchamp used the initial payment on his inheritance to make a film and to go into the art business. The film, shot in Man Ray's studio with the help of cinematographer Marc Allégret, was a seven–minute animation of nine punning phrases by Rrose Sélavy. These had been pasted, letter by letter, in a spiral pattern on round black discs that were then glued to phonograph records; the slowly revolving texts alternate with shots of Duchamp's Discs Bearing Spirals, ten abstract designs whose turning makes them appear to move backward and forward in an erotic rhythm. The little film, which Duchamp called Anemic Cinema, had its premiere that August at a private screening room in Paris.'"

The 2010 Kinetica Art Fair: Pioneers and Masters of Kinetic Art

"Kinetica Art Fair is produced by Kinetica Museum and is the first of its kind in the UK. It provides collectors, curators and the public with a unique opportunity to view and purchase artworks from leading contemporary arts organisations and artists specialising in kinetic, electronic, robotic, light, sound, time–based and interdisciplinary new media art. For 2010, over 35 galleries and organisations are taking part with over 150 artists exhibiting.

The inaugural 2009 Kinetica Art Fair was a seminal cultural event, attracting over 9,000 visitors, and increased the importance and value of kinetic, electronic and new media art on a global level as well as in the mainstream arts press. Kinetica Art Fair 2010 will again take place at P3, the 14,000 sq ft multi–disciplinary arts venue at 35, Marylebone Rd (opposite Madame Taussauds).

For 2010 a special feature exhibition will be dedicated to the pioneers and Masters of kinetic art, with pieces on loan from private collection as well as original interactive installations from the 1968 exhibition of cybernetic art, Cybernetic Serendipity."
