“No Wave”: Under this slogan UNDERDOX presents its ARTIST IN FOCUS this year Harald Vogl and his “New York Trilogy”. Vogl came to the Munich Academy of Arts in the seventies, where he studied painting with Günter Fruhtrunk. At the end of his studies he showed white canvases, “empty pictures”, hinge works to his already started intensive film work, which lasted until 1988. In New York he came into contact with the “No Wave” scene around the legendary Club 57 in East Village and became part of the post-punk period and the “Cinema of Transgression”. In 1975 he showed his films for the first time in Jonas Mekas’ “Anthology Film Archives”, even before creating a New York trilogy with “Only You” (1981), “OK Today Tomorrow” (1983) and “Measure Taken” (1984), preceded by “Dear Jimmy” (1978), a classic of No Wave.

Underdox shows the “New York Trilogy” in the copies restored by the Museum of Modern Art as a German premiere. Harald Vogl is a guest!
