This first-ever study of Swedish experimental film represents the results of a Swedish Research Council initiative in 2006-2008. The essays address the institutions, filmmakers, and films important to the history of experimental film in Sweden, and place this history in larger artistic and socio-cultural contexts. The authors look at the work of the Independent Film Group, regional Fluxus groups, E.A.T., and figures such as Viking Eggeling, Rune Hagberg, Pontus Hulten, OEyvind Fahlstroem, Leo Reis, Bo Jonsson, and Ake Karlung.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A publication of A History of Swedish Experimental Film: From Early Animation to Video Art opens a new realm of cinema to the rest of the world. Its generous and catholic history of the various kinds of non-industrial cinemas in Sweden - of the films, filmmakers and the cultures they sustained - is informed by scholarship in several languages and buoyed by profound insight, but also by grace and enthusiasm. A brilliant contribution to the decentering of accounts of the avant-garde, it is sure to provide a generative model for parallel historiographical undertakings in other places.--David E. James, University of Southern California, Los Angeles
