Józef Robakowski
Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2017, 112 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 16 × 23 cm, English
Price: €22

Józef Robakowski, a key figure of the 1960s and 1970s neo-avant-garde rebellion, is a master of structural cinema and a pioneer of Polish video art. In his practice he has tested viewers’ perceptual habits, developed ideas about mechanical recordings beyond any aesthetic convention, and criticized methods of visual persuasion in films, highlighting in particular the pompousness of political spectacles. A radical experimentalist and media analyst, Robakowski is known for his unique approach, “his own cinema,” in which autobiography replaces dubious history, and in which the artist proposes his own scenario for perceiving the reality of life under communism.

Signed, dated, numbered, edition of 2 + 1 ap.

Honda aims to reconsider the standards of film production protocols, often rearranging the order in which things are done or utilising only certain aspects of the production chain.
