Peter Weiss: In a Divided World I

Peter Weiss's films, shot between 1952 and 1961, crown his career as a painter. The experimental nature of these short studies and documentaries is marked above all by such activities as surrealist drawing and likewise innovative and revolutionary literature. An extraordinary 1979 interview with Peter Weiss by Harun Farocki opens the session.
