Diagonal Symphony

Viking Eggeling Symphonie Diagonale, DE, 1921, 7', 35 mm

One of the first abstract, animated films in film history. Swedish-born Eggeling, who lived and worked in Berlin, created his first film analogously to music, regarding his film as a musical score. He tried to create a universal language that would bridge the gap between the artist and his audience. Eggeling was connected to Dada, constructivism and abstract art and was one of the pioneers in absolute film and visual music.
