Price: EUR 32,90
Price for supporting members*: EUR 26,30
A reading and picture book playing with film history(ies) and what it can mean to stop time (filmically): 99 individual pictures from 99 works by 99 filmmakers since 1945, each selected and described by international writers, artists and journalists from the fields of criticism, film theory, and academia. Following a timecode fortuitously structured by the selected pictures, a topography of Austrian cinema unfolds over the decades between feature films, experiments, and documentations.
With contributions by Raymond Bellour, Nicole Brenez, Ann Cotten, Oswald Egger, Marino Formenti, Sonja Gangl, Karin Harrasser, Florentina Holzinger, Elfriede Jelinek, Anna Jermolaewa, Gertrud Koch, Thomas Köck, Jonathan Meese, Caroline Peters, Milo Rau, Kathrin Röggla, Gerog Seesslen, Clemens J. Setz, Peter Waterhouse, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and many others

A project by the Austrian Film Museum, with financial support of the Austrian Film Institute.
This publication is based on a concept by Frederick Baker, realized 2014–2020 in the course of the Cambridge Research Symposium "Picturing Austrian Cinema."

"Therefore, this invitation to learn more about Austrian cinema takes on the appearance of a game, an experiment, a collage, and a stream of thoughts from numerous intellectuals who share their opinion on what can be regarded as "Austrian.'" (MUSE
