A productive and receptive treatment of film imagery has been around sincethe early 20th century. The anthropological figure homo ludens has alsocontributed to the victory of the visual media, in that the key activities ofcommunal human life—communication through language, interpretation ofthe world, the fostering of community—are all influenced by play. In thissense, art is a form of play turned into form, with content. Sichtspiele presentsfilm and video. All the works included in the publication create a playfultension between visual representation and compositional form. The bookreacts with innovation to the challenges of translating the medium of movingimagery into an art book: on the one hand, it shows stills as visual markers forpictorial dynamics, and on the other, image sequences of each work can be“set into motion” using an app for the cell phone or tablet. Sichtspiele is aninteractive film book that offers the possibility to see moving images. All textsby Michael Ostheimer.
