Viennale: Film as a Subversive Art 2021 – A Tribute to Amos Vogel

The 100th birthday of Amos Vogel (1921–2012), legendary pioneer of independent film and cinema culture, hasn’t just offered Arsenal an opportunity to honor his legacy, but many other institutions too. The joint retrospective being put on by the Viennale and the Austrian Film Museum examines Vogel’s values – polyphony, political awareness, explosive aesthetic and social power, and subversion – from a contemporary perspective and brings together programs by six international curators, including Birgit Kohler from Arsenal, under the title of "Film as a Subversive Art 2021".
