THE PRIMAL SCENE / DIE URSZENE:
Christine Noll Brinckmann Films and Texts

THE PRIMAL SCENE - DIE URSZENE "The term 'avant-garde' is only outdone in its perfidy by the adjective 'experimental'", writes Heinz Emigholz, who in 1993 inaugurated the "Experimental Film Design" class at the Berlin University of the Arts. Christine Noll Brinckmann uses this citation in her 1993 text "Experimental Film 1920-1990: Collective Movements and Solitary Thrusts," which remains the only attempt to give an overview of the history of experimental film in Germany.

Publisher edition arsenal experimental, with support from Berliner Kulturverwaltung-Künstlerinnenprogramm, has taken on the task of initiating new discussions and of putting experimental film back on its feet. And with this publication they do so “in three languages: in that of the film, that of the idea, and in the language of empathy. Christine Noll Brinckmann has mastered all three.” Through works as a filmmaker, spectator, scholar, and author, her films and texts are highly appropriate as the inaugural publication of a series intended to rewrite history by keeping and making films visible.
