Stan VanDerBeek: The Culture Intercom: Film Night

  • MIT List Visual Arts Center: Bartos Theatre
  • March 31, 2011
  • 7:00 pm

Stan VanDerBeek's film work is now regarded as one of the most significant contributions to American underground film. Influenced by Surrealism and Dada, the Beat Generation, and the cinema of Georges Méliès and Buster Keaton, VanDerBeek's earliest films utilized stop-motion animation skills he developed while working on the CBS children's television program, Winky Dink and You. Combining innovative animation techniques with filmed sequences and found footage, award-winning films such as A La Mode (1958), Science Friction, (1959), and Breathdeath (1963), fused experimental film with social critique and anti-war imagery. VanDerBeek incorporated animated collages, live action, found footage, and stop-motion in his widely imaginative films throughout the '60s.

This film screening will present additional film works not on view in the exhibition.
