Last Movies

In 1986, CM von Hausswolff travelled to the depths of Iran to visit the ruins of Alamut castle, the famed residence of Persian emperor Hassan I-Sabbah, master of the Ismaili sect known as the ‘assassins’. Only on returning to Tehran did Hausswolff discover that the prime minister of Sweden, his home, had been assassinated leaving the cinema. The killer remains at large. When Hausswolff told Schtinter this story, he immediately asked: ‘But what had he just seen?’ This was fundamental to the birth of the Last Movies project.

Hausswolff will join Schtinter on this, the final installment of Last Movies at the ICA, with the two artists discussing occult Islam, the recording of ghosts, and trips to ‘nowhere’.
Since the end of the 1970s, CM von Hausswolff has worked as a composer using the audio recorder as his main instrument and as a conceptual visual artist working with performance art, light and sound installations and photography.

Stanley Schtinter has been described as an ‘artist’ by the Daily Mail, as an ‘exorcist’ by the Daily Star. Recent projects include The Lock-In, a 96-hour film consisting solely of indoor pub footage from the British soap opera Eastenders, and Important Books (or, Manifestos Read by Children).
