This installation is a reconstruction of Fischinger’s performances from around 1926 by the Center for Visual Music, Los Angeles. Using Fischinger’s original nitrate materials from the period, the newly restored 35 mm films have been transferred to HD and digitally restored with added colour.”

Venue: Tate Modern, London
