Daniel Eisenberg in conversation with Richard Dyer

Chicago filmmaker Daniel Eisenberg and Third Text's Richard Dyer discuss Eisenberg's four thematically connected films addressing the on-going implications of the events of the Second World War and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Over the last three decades, Daniel Eisenberg has forged a unique body of films that have become internationally recognised for expanding the boundaries between traditions of the personal avant-garde film and historical documentary. This event is held in conjunction with a week of screenings of four key films from Eisenberg's oeuvre: Displaced Person (1981); Cooperation of Parts (1987); Persistence (1997); and Something More Than Night (2003).

Following the event, the artist will be signing copies of Postwar: The Films of Daniel Eisenberg, a major critical study of his work edited by Jeffrey Skoller and released by Black Dog Publishing.

Daniel Eisenberg has exhibited internationally for the past 30 years, including solo screenings at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. He lives and works in Chicago and is Professor of Film/Video/New Media, and Visual and Critical Studies, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Richard Dyer is Editor of Third Text, News Editor for Contemporary Magazine, Managing Editor of Wasafiri, and a freelance art critic and writer. He lives and works in London.
