38/79 Sentimental Punk
Kren: It was in San Francisco at a punk festival. I was already high and the air was so thick in the rooms that you could cut it with a knife. I had a photograph camera with me; I stood in a corner of the entrance hall and took 36 pictures on slide film. At home I put the slides into a slide projector. I took out the lens and filmed the slides by filming directly from the projector - using single frames according to a certain plan.

(Hans Scheugl: "Die Filme. Eine kommentierte Filmographie," in: (ed.) Scheugl Ex Underground Kurt Kren. Seine Filme, Vienna 1996)

36 noticeably blurred and over exposed slides which Kren took at a punk concert form the basis for an attempt to revive lost movement. Kren used a strict ordering principle so that there is a hint of movement between each individual picture.
