As part of the Hammer’s ongoing exhibition, Take It or Leave It: Institution, Image, Ideology, filmmaker Jane Weinstock examines a selection of experimental films from the 1980s that, much like the art of said era, employ appropriation to deconstruct the medium’s conventions. From Puccini’s La Bohème and Cinderella to Hitchcock’s Psycho and Sigmund Freud, a handful of films inspired by classical texts, stories, and scenarios are explored, exposing the unique ways in which filmmakers of the 80s challenged, adapted, and subverted content—all this before words like “content,” “attribution,” and “open-source” were even fledgling terms being introduced into our contemporary, digital age lexicon.
