Between Film and Fine Art
Published by Arbor Vitae.
Edited by Bertrand Schmitt, Frantiek Dryje. Text by Bertrand Schmitt, Frantiek Dryje, Ivo Pur.
Dimensions of Dialogue celebrates the world-renowned Czech filmmaker Jan vankmajer (born 1934), responsible for some of the most memorable and unique animated films ever realized, and who has strongly influenced filmmakers like Tim Burton and The Brothers Quay. This publication presents vankmajer not only as a filmmaker but also as an outstanding fine artist, experimenter, poet and a militant surrealist. Through explorative and informative essays, scholars Bertrand Schmitt and Frantiek Dryje illuminate the various aspects of his output, including puppet theatre, Mannerism, Surrealism and his many collaborations with his wife, Eva vankmajerová (1940–2005), a surrealist painter, filmmaker and ceramicist. The monograph, named after his 1982 film (noted for its brilliant display of “claymation”) includes a number of reproductions of vankmajer's art work, film stills, photographs from plays and a selection of documentary images from the life of this internationally respected and multitalented artist.

The Pendulum, the Pit, and other Pecularities
Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited by Ursula Blickle, Gerald A. Matt. Text by Gaby Hartel, Norbert M. Schmitz, Bert Rebhandl. Interview by by Gerald A. Matt.
Jan Svankmajer (born 1934) is one of the most celebrated animation filmmakers in the world. Widely imitated and hugely influential for several generations of directors and animators, including Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam and the Brothers Quay, Svankmajer populates his surreal universe with sentient household objects, morphing clay figures, grotesquely exaggerated everyday sounds and a mood of paranoia pitched somewhere between Kafka and Poe. Among his best known works are the feature films Alice (1988), Faust (1994) and Conspirators of Pleasure (1996), and the short Dimensions of Dialogue (1982--chosen by Terry Gilliam as one of the ten best animations ever). His most recent film is 2010’s Surviving Life. The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer is the first monographic overview of this major artist’s work. Including excellent film stills, sculptures, illustrations and an interview with the filmmaker, it spans nearly 40 years of visionary creativity.
