Cérémonials. Documentary Film about Festivities and Rituals by Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Dorothée Selz and Jaume Xifra, 1973
Between 1969 and 1973, Catalan artists based in Paris held a series of celebrations and collective happenings known as Ceremonials. Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Jaume Xifra, Benet Rossell and Dorothée Selz organised collective artistic actions with a significant involvement of the public in various places in France and Germany. With a powerful visual force – the chromatic element was fundamental – and coloured food, music, itineraries and ritualised movements, these ‘ceremonials’ were seen as a metaphor for the need for social change that existed at that time.
