A talk with screenings to open the Michel Auder solo exhibition in The New Cut.

In the early 1970s Auder adopted a continuous approach to filmmaking, recording the people and scenarios he encountered and amassing an extensive archive of video footage. His work has been shaped by the informal character of his method and a collection of imagery that is constantly updated, revisited and reworked.

At 6.30 we will screen Part 1:

Rooftops and Other Scenes, 1996, 48' 51"
Polaroid Cocaine, 1993, 5'
Made for Denise, 1978, 3' 5"
Total runtime 57'

Followed by a talk by Cubitt Curator Michelle Cotton with clips from other Michel Auder works. Michelle Cotton is a curator and writer based in London.
