Contribution To Light, 1968

Super 8mm film on HD video

"These films were made before I had taken a class on filmmaking. Someone gave me a Super 8 camera and I was smitten with what I could do with it, what it could record, the portability and, especially, the intimacy – how film could express who I am in a way I had not found before." — Barbara Hammer

Estate of Barbara Hammer

Barbara Hammer was born in Hollywood in 1939. Her documentary and experimental films are considered among the earliest and most extensive representations of lesbian identity, love, and sexuality. Accompanying her career as a filmmaker, Hammer has time and again worked with performance and installation. She has participated in group exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial in 1993, the WACK! show at MOCA L.A. and MoMA PS1 in 2007/2008. With film retrospectives at New York’s MoMA in 2010 and the Tate Modern, London, in 2012, the artworld's interest in Hammer's work has recently increased. Hammer has been a teacher for many years and held a professorship at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee (CH). She died in 2019.
