"Time Out for Sport" by Australian Paul Winkler (his complete oeuvre is held
by MoMA) is a master piece not to be missed!

Betreff: Athletics vs. Aesthetics


Hello all,

I'm setting up a program for The Experimental Film/Video Series at Woodland
Pattern Book Center here in Milwaukee and was wondering if anyone has some
titles to suggest.
This program will address the question: What does a marginalized cultural
force (underground and avant garde film/video) have to say about a dominant
mainstream cultural force (competitive sport)? I began to think about art
and sport after hearing a story in which the director of athletics at
Princeton suggested that sport be made a topic for academic study, and that
to study athletics is no different than studying other performative art
forms. He received, along with the journalist reporting the story, many
hostile reactions.
I am looking for short works that reference mainstream competitive sport in
any way, even if they don't seem to relate to this general question.
