We have five signed copies of Jan Švankmajer’s Touching and Imagining: An Introduction to Tactile Art to give away.
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
One of cinema’s most visionary filmmakers, the work of Jan Švankmajer – including surrealist animations like Alice, Little Otik and Dimensions of Dialogue – continues to influence today with its mixture of wit and macabre, and seemingly limitless imagination.
Touching and Imagining, Švankmajer’s book on his exploration into tactile art, was written when he stopped directing films in the late 1970s after repeated censorship by the communist governmnent of Czechoslovakia. And until now, has never been published in English.
To celebrate the release, we are offering you the chance to win one of five signed copies of the book. We will also be offering an unsigned copy of Touching and Imagining to three runners up. Illustrated with over 100 images, this book is organised around many reproductions of Svanmajker’s wondrous tactile art objects, and includes dialogues with, and artworks by, other collaborating artists from the Group of Czech and Slovak Surrealists.
To enter the competition, simply name the two films in the stills below and email your answers with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line JAN SVANKMAJER:
The deadline is 5pm GMT on Friday 18th July and the winners and three runners up will be chosen at random from the correct entries.
