^Peter Gidal has been a central figure in British artists´film for almost four decades. He was an acitve member of the London Filmmakers Co-operative, where he was the cinema programmer for several years in the 1970s, and since the late 1960s he has produced a body of work which has consistently challenged audiences to examine the conditions of meaning in film. Rigorous and provocative, Gidal´s films are a sustained attempt to reveal the codes and conventions of viewing, and to address the formal fundamentals of film politically. Often identified with "structural-materialism", he has been a key theorist of this strand of filmmaking practice and his books "Structuiral films anthology" (BFI, 1976), and "Materialist Film" (Routledge, 1988) have been hugely influential. His films continue to be shown around the world, including a retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Paris in 1996.
