Item description for Fast Forward: Media Art by Stephan Urbaschek Fernanda Arruda...
In our accelerated era of "faster," "better," "farther," "higher," this comprehensive catalogue of the media art of the world-renowned Goetz Collection in Munich offers not only a survey of much of the most important film and video work to have been made over the last 15 years, but also a vision of how our habit of seeing and experiencing the world--in perpetual fast forward mode--has come out of our own cultural acceleration. The works brought together in this 532-page volume are at once an expression of and a reaction to the hyper-speed of our times. They span from the slow-motion images in David Claerbout's still life-like landscape portrait, Ruurlo, Bocurloscheweg 1910, to the rhythmic-dynamic disco tempo of Wolfgang Tillmans's Lights (Body). This superb collection includes videos, video installations and films by Matthew Barney, Olaf Breuning, Tracey Emin, Fischli & Weiss, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Pierre Huyghe, Isaac Julien, Mike Kelley, Sharon Lockhart, Sarah Morris, Raymond Pettibon, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, Ann-Sofi Siden, Diana Thater and others.
