VALIE EXPORT at International Film Festivals

VALIE EXPORT has shown her cinematic works to great success in the exhibition context and at international festivals, and she has been able to position herself with her experimental works in the projection room of the theatre as well as in the gallery space. In 1968 VALIE EXPORT co-founded the Austrian Filmmakers Cooperative, today named Austria Film Coop, in order to establish a distribution of Austrian, independently produced films at home and abroad.

The selected materials date back from 1973 to the 1990s and open a retrospective view on many participations in avant-garde and underground festivals. Los Angeles, Chicago, Cannes, London, Locarno, Berlin, and Hong Kong are just a few of the stations that, based on the correspondence, also demonstrate the importance of this operation as a platform for networking, mediation, and appreciation of filmmakers.
