One of the most thrilling works in experimental cinema, Oskar Fischinger’s 'Raumlichtkunst' (c.1926/2012) is presented for the first time in New Zealand.

This exhibition presents one of the first multimedia projections ever made, Oskar Fischinger’s 'Raumlichtkunst', a re-creation of his multiple-screen film events, first shown in Germany in 1926, and restored by the Center for Visual Music in Los Angeles.

'Raumlichtkunst' has come to the Govett-Brewster from its most recent installation at the Whitney Museum, New York, where it was both critically acclaimed and a popular hit. It was described by the New York Times as "dazzling... an exhilarating phantasmagoria of abstraction and metaphor".

The artwork was also exhibited at Tate Modern London, Palais de Toyko Paris and other venues worldwide.
