Anarchive nº3 - Title TK
Book (648 pages) + DVD-Rom

English / fran├žais

TITLE TK by Thierry Kuntzel, is the third volume of the anarchive series, both a new work and a database covering all of the artist's works. First known for his work as a film theorist, Thierry Kuntzel is one of the most important artists in France today. He produced most of his videotapes between 1979 and 1980, and since has created installations with projected images, light and sound.

The book (648 pages) includes the transcription of about 600 of his working notes, more than a half of them translated into English. The DVD-ROM also presents these manuscripts, and some of these are read by Kuntzel. Through video excerpts of the works that are revealed interactively to the reader, three main paths are possible: body, representation and time. The variations of light and changes of speed, the multiplicity of points of view and the place of the spectator, the apparition and disappearance of traces, highlight the processes of memory and of perception, the fragility of all image, the futility of any attempt to hold on to an image.
In addition, the description of nearly forty works, several theoretical texts by Kuntzel, here collected for the first time. A selection of texts referring to his works by authors such as Raymond Bellour, also can be accessed in the database.
