Born and raised in Paris, Pier Marton moved to the U.S. in the early seventies to live in Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco and, more recently, St. Louis; in parallel to teaching media at major universities, his many video-art activities have included video installations, performances and documentaries (with works in prominent museums like MoMA and Beaubourg).
As new media offers more and more a form of pseudo-challenge to the status quo, for Pier Marton it is “no-media” that now represents the next frontier: to look beyond media and most concepts, however "practical" those may appear to be.
He is available for presentations and workshops on:
Non-Images & No-Media - Slow Cinema - Shoah and Film- Experimental Cinema and Video Art - Film Painting in Sound/Movement - Non-Violent Media - Imperfection in Film - Unclassifiable Music/Arts - Blinded by Sight - The Shoah in 1,000 Years - A Porous Reality - Secular Jews - Taking it the Hard Way - Exhilarating Creativity - and anything else that may be ignored by society at large.
Remnants from recent presentations: Images of the Other (at the School of Visual Arts Alguonquin Annual Conference), Resistance (at a St. Louis Yom HaShoah Commemoration).
