About the Author
Dennis Hopper is among the best-known film stars in the world. His acting career includes such credits as "Rebel Without a Cause", "Apocalypse Now", and "Blue Velvet". His directing career has included such films as "Easy Rider" and "The Last Movie". In addition to acting and directing, Hopper is a noted photographer, painter, and sculptor. His work has been in museum exhibitions at such U.S. venues as the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. He lives in Venice, California.
Dennis Hopper, one of Hollywood's last great cult figures, is best known for his depiction of social outcasts in films such as "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Apocalypse Now", as well as for directing classic films like "Easy Rider". Hopper has also, however, made a name for himself as an artist and a photographer. His photographic chronicle of America in the 1960s, a decade marked by awakening and rebellion and documented by Hopper in forceful black-and-white pictures, has now become legendary. "A System of Moments", published on the occasion of a major retrospective exhibition at the MAK, Vienna, is a kaleidoscopic documentation of painting, photography, film, and life. It is the first comprehensive publication that takes in to account all of the diverse artistic activities in Hopper's nearly 50-year career, and it examines particularly the subtle connection between genres that is a hallmark of his work. For the first time, recent photographic works, which emerged after a long hiatus from the medium in the 1990s, are also presented. A major retrospective that will be the definitive statement on Hopper's career.
