Buñuel’s masterpiece as a source of contemporary inspiration. Surrealism reloaded!

When Luis Buñuel’s L’ Âge d’or was premiered on No­vember 29, 1930, it hit a raw nerve, having a potent effect on the audience through its radical and some­times scandalous imagery. Banned for fifty years, Buñuel’s early Surrealist masterpiece continues to ex­ert an enormous influence on the artistic medium of film. L’ Âge d’or is based on the structure of the Surre­alist game of the cadavre exquis and consists of six individual, linked sequences. Following this format, The Scorpion’s Sting presents original reinterpreta­tions of these episodes by the international contem­porary artists John Bock, Chicks on Speed, Keren Cytter, M + M, Julian Rosefeldt, and Tobias Zielony. Created specifically for this joint project, their works are radi­cal creations, documented by extensive illustrations and original film scripts included in the publication.
