Institutions like The Tate Modern, London, the Jeu de Paume, Paris, or the Museum of Modern Art, New York, have dedicated extensive retrospectives to her work in recent years. Hammers formally extremely independent work oscillates between experimental film and film essay. Among the filmmaker’s best-known productions is her documentary trilog y “Nitrate Kisses”, “Tender Fictions” and “History Lessons” about Lesbian history. Barbara Hammer was born in Hollywood in 1939. She studied psycholog y and English literature. In 2010 she published her memoir “Hammer! Making Movies out of Sex and Life”.
