Poster promoting Stereopticon, created and produced by Gasworks collective in 1968. Described as “a collective folk-rock- acid-jazz-poetry opera” by one of the work’s filmmaker’s, Andy Fahrenwald, Stereopticon was awarded special mention at the 1970 Baltimore Film Festival.
Fahrenwald himself was an interesting figure who moved from the avant-garde and “expanded cinema” scene based in New York to more militant activist video work associated with the magazine Radical Software (Stereopticon is mentioned in the spiked and unpublished version of issue 6) and the collectives Ant Farm and Videofreex. After Stereopticon, Fahrenwald was involved in the development and production of several works by San Francisco Newsreel.
