Sperrsitzer - The Person in the back stalls

  • Ready-made VHS footage on S-VHS

A miniature portrait of Lutz Mommartz, a German avant-garde film artist of the sixties. The video is made up of cuttings from his films and film sequences as well as interviews he took part in. Again, the spoken word forms the video’s red thread. Unseparated from the accompanying pictures of the original footage, it shows the film artist’s doubts about the production of art.
