- Issue Date:
When Luis Buñuel s L Âge d or was premiered on No¬vember 29, 1930, it hit a raw nerve, having a potent effect on the audience through its radical and some¬times scandalous imagery. Banned for fifty years, Buñuel s early Surrealist masterpiece continues to ex¬ert an enormous influence on the artistic medium of film. L Âge d or is based on the structure of the Surre¬alist game of the cadavre exquis and consists of six individual, linked sequences. Following this format, The Scorpion s Sting presents original reinterpreta¬tions of these episodes by the international contem-porary artists John Bock, Chicks on Speed (Alexandra Murray-Leslie, Melissa Logan), Keren Cytter, M + M, Julian Rosefeldt, and Tobias Zielony. Created specifically for this joint project, their works are radi¬cal creations, documented by extensive illustrations and original film scripts included in the publication.
