For French readers.
Thierry Kuntzel and Philippe Grandrieux's La Peinture cubiste, a film/video-produced hybrid that MoMA has shown (on a worn videotape) in their series in tribute to the late Kuntzel, may very well be a major work that we don't often hear about.
Never have I been more frustrated at my own inadequate comprehension at French, particularly spoken French--words and phrases bubbling up so that they made some sense but, without subtitles, I was generally adrift. I must really learn this language. This videofilm could be one of my favorites. Grandrieux filmed (a cubist painter and his wife, in an apartment), and Kuntzel videotaped (negative filter effects, tromboning to distort the linear integrity of the objects). Something about the nature of vision, the visual experience of a cubist painter as he sees the objects and furniture of his room; Grandrieux & Kuntzel have situated him in the history of Western painting since the Renaissance. I think it could be great. I wish I could tell.
