We are proud to feature a retrospective of the work of Swiss animation legend Georges Schwizgebel, one of the most celebrated independent animators of all time. In the decades spanning Schwizgebel’s career, he pioneered original techniques to reweave the formal fabric of animation. His structural animations are composed like complex musical scores with a dizzying Escher-like recursivity. A Schwizgebel film will spin around you and sneak up on you, as your grip on its form gets increasingly shaken. He is truly an unparalleled voice in animation history and his films bring the use of the frame and the cycle to an entirely new conceptual level.
