mommartzfilm 1964 – 2020. Premiere & Retrospective

The work of the experimental filmmaker Lutz Mommartz (*1934, Erkelenz) has been present in the art and film scene for over 50 years, and yet has never been the focus of a solo exhibition in Düsseldorf, where he has worked as an artist since the 1960s. From the very beginning of his career, Lutz Mommartz was one of the unconventional thinkers who opposed the profane dream factory of cinema and sought to bring about a radical new beginning of film with aesthetic and social relevance. His concern was not the narrative and seductive element of film, but experimental answers to questions associated with film production.
