Abstract or Description

Named after Wollen’s comparison of photography with the moving image, this volume brings together Wollen’s numerous experiments with counter-language. It places side-by-side, and on an equal footing, the formal politics of avant-garde film with the practical enactments of experimental writing and the experimental practices of applying semiotic and linguistic theory to photography, cinema and video, all of which aimed at the defamiliarisation of meanings of objects.
