VIDEOLOGY 2 continues Louis Armand's broad-ranging critique of realism in film, visual arts and literature. From Nam June Paik's experimental TV to the militant cinema of Pontecorvo, Fassbinder & Godard; from Karel Teige's cine-poetics to Neo-Attack; from anti-American filmographies of Petit, Jarmusch & Wenders, to the "cinema at the end of the world." Includes essays on Robert Fuest, Gene Youngblood, Vilem Flusser, Charlotte Moorman, Yves Klein, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Amos Poe, Andy Warhol, John Cassavetes, Russ Meyer, Brian De Palma, Jerry Schatzberg, Ken Russell, Nicolas Roeg, Liliana Cavani, Alex Cox, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Emir Kusturica, Gyorgy Palfi...

Videology 2 is the second volume of a 3-part critique of the ideology of realism across the culture industry, from literature to film, cybernetics and the plastic arts. Its broadly "syncretic" approach follows the models of Marshall McLuhan, Buckminster Fuller, Karel Teige, and others, and is in keeping with the "interdiscisplinarity" of the historical avant-gardes and the project of modernity itself.
