Dear friends!

After 25 years of working in the medium of film, it gives me
genuine pleasure to announce the publication of a book about
the work I undertook from 1980 through 2005:

Alexander Horwath, Michael Loebenstein (Hg.),
Peter Tscherkassky
Wien 2005, FilmmuseumSynemaPublikationen
ISBN 3-901644-16-4
250 Seiten, zweisprachig (dt./engl.),

iThe text includes more than 120 frame enlargements, production
stills and documents; 80 additional picture pages; a filmography with commentary on all 30 films; a current bibliography and biography.

"It is a challenge to do justice in printed form to Peter Tscherkassky’s
disquietingly beautiful manipulation of moving images, but this publication succeeds in the venture: with analytical texts that map out primary artistic concerns as well as treating specific works, the filmmaker’s witty commentary in review of his carreer, and a breathtaking visual design."
Stefan Grissemann
