Rist explores the macrocosm of humanity in a video, art and music collaboration. A lyrical tale of a witch's coven is played over images of a person where each body part symbolically represents an area of the world. The DVD includes an interview with the artist by Hans-Ulrich Obrist.
Point Of View: An Anthology of the Moving Image is a DVD series that features eleven leading artists from different generations and cultural perspectives, who are among the most important artists working in film, video, and digital imagery today: Francis Alys, David Claerbout, Douglas Gordon, Gary Hill, Pierre Huyghe, Joan Jonas, Isaac Julien, William Kentridge, Paul McCarthy, Pipilotti Rist and Anri Sala.
The anthology includes eleven separate DVDs in a boxed set.
