The first avant-garde cinema art house in France, the Studio des Ursulines, opened in 1926. It has been kept as it was when it served to premiere the works by André Breton, Luis Buñuel, René Clair, Man Ray and Germaine Dulac. The projection of her first film provoked a loud fight in the room between Breton and Louis Aragon that stopped the projection. On December 11, the Studio will host Barbara Meter’s 35mm, 16mm, and dual-projection film works for Light Cone's SCRATCH series, with an introduction and Q&A by Emmanuel Lefrant and Mónica Savirón; projected by Thomas Koenig and Lefrant, with support of all Light Cone's team. FOUND SOUNDS: A Retrospective of Barbara Meter's Avant-Garde Films includes audio poetry, film prints preserved by EYE Fillmuseum with Simona Monizza and Guy Edmonds, plus John Cage, Steve Reich, Remco Campert, Guy Sherwin, Sally Potter, Jos Schoffelen, Mattijn Seip, Pim van Isveldt, Mike Dunford, Kathleen Ferrier’s and Gerald Moore’s recordings, Franz Schubert, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Cecilia Bartoli, György Fischer, Antonio Caldara, Giulio Caccini's music as speech, Johann Sebastian Bach, radio war, loud silence, and Francesco Tuma’s Stabat Maters.
