ANÉMIC CINÉMA

by Marcel DUCHAMP
1925-1926 / 35mm / b&w / silent / 1S / 7' 05

This characteristically dada film by Marcel Duchamp consists of a series of visual and verbal puns with nonsense phrases inscribed around rotating spiral patterns, creating an almost hypnotic effect.
“Thought provoking and offensive are possible ways to interpret the ten optical discs and corresponding puns displayed in the film. The word play of French syllogisms gleefully collides with the protruding-receding optical illusions of the rotating spheres. Julien Levy called the film 'Spirals' and screened it repeatedly at his gallery during the 1930s.” — Bruce Posner
