Amid the devastation following World War II, German artists and filmmakers engaged in technical experimentation that drew upon multiple media as they sought to redefine the nature of artistic practice and its relationship to national identity. Among these experimental forms was cameraless animation, a method of abstract filmmaking that involves the direct manipulation of film through scratching, puncturing, painting, and chemical alteration of emulsion.
The Harvard Art Museums will offer free admission to all visitors today, in celebration of Art Museum Day and International Museum Day, organized by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) and the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
