Morgan Fisher studied art history at Harvard from 1960 to 1964 before attending film school in Los Angeles and going into film. He then worked in Hollywood for several years, mostly as an editor, an experience that shaped his experimental practice. In the 1970s, Fisher created several film installations that can be described as works of Expanded Cinema. From the mid-1990s, in a further development, he turned to monochrome painting and installations of monochrome paintings.
With introductions by Sabine Folie and Susanne Titz, essays by Thom Andersen, Rainer Bellenbaum / Sabeth Buchmann, Yve-Alain Bois and short texts by Morgan Fisher
