: VAL DEL OMAR overflow. Conversation with Eugeni Bonet and Javier Ortiz Echagüe
The work of José Val del Omar (Granada, 1904-Madrid, 1982) goes beyond the usual limits of cinema and technique. The artist developed a particular relationship with poetry, mysticism, experience and moving images throughout his entire career. In contrast with cinema as a spectacle that is merely for contemplation, Val del Omar theorizes on and puts into practice an expanded and physical cinema, which can be summarized in concepts such as apanoramic overflow and diaphonic sound.
