Founded in 1935; The Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film and Media is home to one of the most important film archives in the world. The collections include over twenty thousand works; from the earliest movies to the most contemporary moving picture art - from a twenty-seven-second film made by W.K.L. Dickson and William Heise in 1893 to video art and media works by artists such as Chris Marker; Pipilotti Rist; and Joan Jonas. Here; for the first time; is a volume that celebrates this remarkable archive; with over five hundred images from individual films; drawn largely from the Museum's collection of still photographs. Special sections detail significant collections; including those of works by Andy Warhol and Joseph Cornell; of films starring Douglas Fairbanks; and of films produced by the Edison and Biograph companies; two of the world's first commercial film producers. An introduction by Steven Higgins; Curator in the Department of Film and Media; outlines the history of the Museum's collections and gives some insight into how The Museum of Modern Art goes about fulfilling its mandate: acquiring; preserving; and exhibiting these extraordinary and singular works; which form such a large part of the history of the moving image.
