Dziga Vertov

The Vertov Collection at the Austrian Film Museum

Edited by Thomas Tode and Barbara Wurm

For the Russian filmmaker and film theorist Dziga Vertov (1896-1954), cinema was both a bold aesthetic experiment and a document of contemporary life. This English/German bilingual catalogue includes films, photographs, posters, letters and a large number of previously unpublished sketches, drawings, and writings.
An extraordinary collection of writings by and about Dziga Vertov. Graham Roberts, Russian Review
In all, this material is a fascinating introduction to Vertov’s work for all and a temptation to travel for those of us having a more academic interest. Naturally the catalogue is sumptuously illustrated with over two hundred color and black and white illustrations. Even among these iconographic images of modernism are some new delights, including many photographs of Vertov’s filming group in action. The Russian Review
This book opens a new path to the dizzy vertex of Dziga Vertov. The Slavonic & East European Review
