The Artist and the Cinema

  1. Invisible Adversaries, 1976
    VALIE EXPORT's first feature film also includes her early works. Photography, performance and video fit into the story of a woman who increasingly feels threatened by an invisible power.
     
  2. Human Females, 1979
    The film sketches the social conditions of women introducing four protagonists, whose attempt to break out of social role attributions VALIE EXPORT skilfully visualises artistically.
    The Practice of Love, 1984
    In the film The Practice of Love, VALIE EXPORT translates her experiences from the avant-garde genre into a thriller that revolves around dependence and abysses.
