Museum's films: the Pompidou Collection

The hieroglyphic of movement

At the request of Xcèntric, this season the heads of film collections of the principal international art museums will present a selection, at once personal and representative, of their constituent works. We start this series with a programme from the collection of the Centre Georges Pompidou, put together and presented by Philippe-Alain Michaud, featuring seminal creators such as Duchamp, Kubelka and Conner.
