Guest Book


Kenneth Anger
Hutchison, Alice L.

Black Dog Publishing LTD., London, 2004. Softcover with wrappers, 256 pages. Profusely illustrated in many full-bleed color illustrations.

A long overdue publication on the artist and filmmaker Kenneth Anger. With a career spanning over 60 years - from the classic Fireworks, 1947, lauded by Jean Cocteau and Tennessee Williams, to the influential Scorpio Rising, 1963, to recent projects that have not been discussed in detail until now.

Alice L. Hutchison sets Anger's work within the social and artistic contect of the twentieth century - from the bohemian world of Cocteau in Paris in the 1940s and 50s to the psychedelic London in the late 60s to Anger's hometown of Hollywood, made infamous in his Hollwood Babylon books. With many new reproductions, this book provides an essential introduction to one of the pioneers of independent filmaking.

Alongside the text by Hutchison, this publication consolidates English and French texts as well as interviews by Anger, alongside commentaries on his work by Stan Brakhage, Anais Nin, Samson De Brier, Jonas Mekas and Carolee Schneeman.
