“The actor, director and artist Dennis Hopper was the first to recognize Bruce Connor's (1933-2008) experimental films as forerunners of today's MTV video clip. Since A Movie, his 1958 found footage montage masterpiece drawing on newsreel material and film clips, Conner's name comes up together with those of the great avantgardists of American independent cinema: Stan Brakhage, Jack Smith and Andy Warhol.

Conner has not only opened up new ways of filmmaking, but has repeatedly reinvented himself as an artist in his works in various media. Bruce Conner regarded identity and authenticity as variables which he questioned critically and humorously. Whether he staged a political candidacy, used his friend Dennis Hopper's name as a pseudonym or had himself declared dead in Who Was Who of America of 1973.“ (Barbara Steffen & Gerald Matt)

Offering a comprehensive, cross-media selection of works – drawings, paintings, photograms and filmstills –, the publication shed light on the parallels between Bruce Conner's production as an artist and a filmmaker.
