Having struggled as a poet for 20 years, Marcel Broodthaers decided at age 40 to become a visual artist instead. Working primarily with found objects and film, Broodthaers continued in the critical and fantastical tradition of the Dadaists, and Cinema documents Broodthaers's immediate shift from poet to visual artist as well as the political and theoretical framework behind his films. Featuring original writing in French, copies of film reel, and critical essays on Broodthaer's ouevre, and as the first volume of the catalogue raisonne on Broodthaers, Cinema is a perfect entryway into the work of one of the most underrated Dada artists.
