Robert Morris: The Mind/Body Problem
France, 1995
45 min

Often regarded as one of the emblematic figures of Minimal Art, Robert Morris is unclassifiable, he even eludes the rubric of Antiform and Process Art, to whose birth he directly contributed. Adopting the structure of a performance he created in 1964, in which he mimics celebrated art historian Erwin Panofsky, the film places Morris and Rosalind Krauss in a fictional relationship : the critic becomes the artist's teacher, and this lesson, which is illustrated with images from Morris' recent Guggenheim retrospective, shows us the complexity of a body of works centered entirely on the human body.
