The Feature directed by Michel Auder and Andrew Neel

Michel Auder and Andrew Neel, "The Feature" 2008. Still from video. 177 minutes.

Join video artist Michel Auder as he introduces a screening of The Feature (2008, 177 minutes), a fictional biography based on his life as told by co-directors Auder and Andrew Neel. 

Auder’s video work is a fathomless library gathered from 40 years of experience, that is wholly unique in the history of the moving image. .

For over forty years, Michel Auder has portrayed the world around him in a subjective fashion based on his own life and experience. Following his move from Paris to New York in 1970, he spent the 1970s and 1980s filming those he lived and socialised with, including many people from the artistic and cultural circles. Auder uses this material to make films in his own personal documentary approach. Since the end of the 1970s, Auder’s video work has branched out in multiple directions, including fictional films conceived in collaboration with some of his friends and acquaintances, highly autobiographical films which blend fiction and documentary, compositions on the filming of television images, or videos based on a loose association of images. An exhibition of the artist will take place at Kunsthalle Basel in June 2013.
