Jozef Robakowski

Robakowski1

° 1939

Born in Poznan (Poland), lives in Łódź (Poland).

Józef Robakowski (1939, Poland, lives in Łódź) is one of the pioneers of Polish independent filmmaking. A co-founder of Zero-61 and other groups in the 1960s experimenting with cinematic visuality, he also films the everyday as an object of behavioural analysis. 'From My Window' (1978–1985) is composed of shots of a public square collected over a number of years, whereas 'Market' (1970) compresses the moving image into a miniature of lived experience. Robakowski used only two frames every five seconds. ‘This condensed picture of reality was sufficient for many spectators to get the impression of a complete documentary registration.’
