7/64 Leda und der Schwan
AT / 1964
3 min.

Kren´s film 7/64 - Leda and the Swan is also based on a Muehl Materialaktion. The almost convulsive use of juxtaposition reappears here, but the captured gesture assumes a more erotic sensitivity, though the "action" itself was primarily a gradual destruction of the erotic.

(Steven Dwoskin)

This film developed along the same lines as Mamma und Papa did. Because material was missing - irritated by unforeseen spectators, the action´s female model stopped earlier than expected - Kren inserted the balloon sequence from Mama und Papa here as well.
