Marc Adrian was born in Vienna in 1930. Since the 1950s, he has been experimenting with a variety of artistic media. He belongs to the first postwar generation of Austrian avant-garde filmmakers who developed ‘structuralist films’ in the 1950s. He was particularly interested in problems of visual semantics in pictures, objects, texts, and films. He was a member of the New Tendencies movement. In 1969, he won an award at the computer art contest of Tendencies 4 (in Zagreb, Croatia) He joined t4 in ´68 and´69. His films of the early 1950s and 1960s show traces “in which the dimension of time is brought to bear on minimalist space structures which were sought in the visual arts at the time” (Thomas Rothschild).
