Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen are best known as film theorists and filmmakers. As writers, they made highly influential interventions in film theory such as Mulvey’s Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema and Wollen’s The Two Avant-Gardes (both 1975). Between 1974 and 1983, the duo made six films together, seeking cinematic forms that investigated and countered dominant languages of looking, signification, and narration, and that could engage the viewer in conceptual debate. Across writing and filmmaking, their works bring into contact semiotics, feminism, psychoanalysis, and histories and theories of the avant-garde.

These concerns, although modulated and reworked in different ways, continue in the projects they undertook separately from the mid-1980s onward.The exhibition at Camera Austria opens up new ways of understanding this body of work by foregrounding Mulvey and Wollen’s multiple engagements with photography, including documentaries about artists working with photography (such as Tina Modotti and Milton Rogovin); theory films that reflect and challenge the cinematic, and hence photographic, gaze itself; numerous critical essays on photography and its relationship to other cultural forms; and their role as important interlocutors for artists working with photography.
