“PICTURES. Erstes internationales Festival des erotischen Films 1971 / First Internation Erotica Film Festival 1971”

Germany: Olympia Press, 1972. Oblong 8vo in wraps as issued. Unpaginated with around 130 pages, short intro text in German else illustrated with film stills throughout. Cool book design by Adolf Heinzlmeier

With 4 stills from Bruce Nauman “Bouncing Balls”, 1969: “Nauman bounces his testicles with one hand. Shot in extreme close-up, the work is perhaps an ironic reference to an earlier film Bouncing Two Balls Between the Floor and Ceiling with Changing Rhythms, in which he bounced rubber balls. Along with Black Balls, Gauze, and Pulling Mouth, Bouncing Balls is one of Nauman’s “Slo-Mo” films which are shot with an industrial high speed camera.” Other photos show stills from films by Marc Adrian, Carla und Claus, Sandy Daley, M. Guggenheim, Ron Johnston, Mike Margettes, Ed Seeman, Irm und Ed Sommer, Michael Wildhagen. On the cover a still from Ron Johnston “Hallelujah”
