Example text

In a remarkable statement illuminating in respect of both the understanding of his own work as well as the interpretation of the image repetition in Warhol’s pictures he characterises pop art as a “return to ‘conceptual’ painting”. “If you take a Campbell’s Soup Can and repeat it 50 times”, he explained, then “you are not interested in the retinal image. What interests you is the concept that wants to put 50 Campbell’s Soup Cans on a canvas” (cf. Beyeler 2000: 8). From Collage to the Multiple 39 But what is the concept behind putting 50 Campbell’s Soup cans or 112 green Coca-Cola bottles on a canvas?

This characterisation “fits” well into the picture developed here of the avant-garde as a whole. And correspondences between avant-garde painting and avant-garde film are not at all confined to the “multiplicity of viewpoints” on which Standish Lawder focuses in his comparison between avant-garde film and cubist painting. Other characteristics include the prismatic fracturing of images and the floating interpenetration of moving objects in Léger’s Ballet mécanique, the interplay of planes and the spatial ambiguities in Richter’s Rhythmus films, the optical experiments with light and shadow in Man Ray’s Return to Reason and the technical manipulation of visual perception in Duchamp’s Anémic Cinèma.
