Informed by Dada, Surrealism and Duchamp’s found objects, Bruce Conner (1933-2008) was a pioneer in the field of found footage films. This programme includes a selection of his work and that of Canadian found footage maestro Arthur Lipsett (1936-86).

The films will be introduced by Geoffrey Farmer, who will discuss their influence on his own practice.
