Become a Microscope: 90 Statements on Sister Corita, 2009.

A documentary directed by Aaron Rose.

 

Sister Corita (1918-1986) was an artist, teacher, philosopher, political activist and possibly one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960's. However, what is perhaps even more incredible is the fact that she was a Catholic nun. She was a multi-faceted artist who practiced painting, photography, typography and graphic design, but she became most well known for her colorful serigraphs. In the 1950s, she began teaching art at the Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and due to her unorthodox teaching methods, quickly gained an impressive roster of supporters. Creative personalities such as Alfred Hitchcock, Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and John Cage all became a part of Corita's network of friends.

 

 

 

 

Dieter Roth Puzzle, 2009

A Documentary by Hilmar Oddson

 

In 1957 a young, unknown Swiss artist, DIETER ROTH followed the woman he loved to Iceland. After 7 years amongst people who had little understanding of his talent he left the country, his wife and three children to become one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He spent most of his working life in Switzerland and Germany but Iceland remained a refuge, an inspiration and a second home to Roth, who left a distinctive mark on the local art scene as well as to the philosophy and work of other artists.
