Michel Auder

Michel Auder grew up in France, where he took part in the radical independent filmmaker group Zanzibar. He moved to New York in 1969 and became involved with Andy Warhol’s Factory and lived at the Chelsea Hotel for several years. Influenced by post-war experimental cinema, he is a video raconteur who has fervently recorded his life, experiences, and observations on film for over forty years, and whose work elicits a sense of intimacy paired with the conscious pleasure of looking.

Michel Auder will present a selection of film works from the 1960s through the present, and discuss his practice with Fahrenheit Director and Curator Martha Kirszenbaum.
