Marcel Odenbach has influenced the development of video and media art more than any other artist of his generation. From 2010 on, he succeeded the worlds-wide first chair of video, affiliated at the prestigious Art Academy Düsseldorf, Germany. In honor of the 60th birthday of the artist, the anthology of seminal texts and a unique collection of the artist's videos shall illuminate the exemplary role and importance of Marcel Odenbach's artistic practice from the perspectives of art history, media theory, cultural studies, film science, complemented by curatorial, ethnological, semiotic, sociological, and psychoanalytic approaches, as well as those of gender- and performance studies.
With essays from Heather Barton, Hans Belting, Raymond Bellour, Dan Cameron, Sabine Fabo, Solange Farkas, Jörg Heiser, Wulf Herzogenrath, Kathy Rae Huffman, Slavko Kacunko, Doris Krystof, Friedemann Malsch, Kobena Mercer, Yvonne Spielmann, and Paul Virilio.
