Der Körper als Matrix – Matthew Barney Cremaster-Zyklus

Maria Anna Tappeiner, Germany, 2002, 47’, G

The film was occasioned by the 2002 completion of the five-piece Cremaster Cycle begun in 1994. Matthew Barney’s complex cosmos of images is explained in excerpts and commentaries by the artist and other participants and, in this roundabout way, results in a successful characterisation of his personality. As part of the exhibition FUTURE PRESENT, the entire Cremaster Cycle and Goodyear Field (1996) from Cremaster 1 (1995–1996) can be viewed in the room dedicated to Barney.
