With Ludwig Chateau. The film is the question to an old sculptor from Düsseldorf whether he was willing to participate in an Old Age Porn. On a search for a cuple for a love story with sex beyond the 70 Herbert Götzinger sent me to his colleagues sculptor Ludwig Chateau. During my surprise visit with the running camera, asking if he would be willing to do his part, he attacked me: "Is not that enough what they're doing at this moment?" (LUTZ MOMMARTZ)

With Günther Uecker and Brigitte Stöckhert Male finger between two female fingers. Addicional eroctic giggling. In "The Finger" we see a male finger moving between two female fingers; with that the giggeling of a woman and a man. A film of sensual touch with all its related associations. (H.P.KOCHENRATH)

A short music video with the music of the band Mama Woju with the singer Markus Flaschenträger. The idea of the song and the video is a take off on the situation of a hitchhiker. In this song, the hitchhiker give a businessman a ride to Berlin. The special situation is that at this time you had to cross the DDR to go to Berlin so it was a very dangerous thing to take a hitchhiker on this road.(LM)

Liebe Leute, ich arbeite an einem filmischen Bild: ‚Der durchsichtige Mensch’.                              Der lebt im 22. Jahrhundert und kontrolliert seine Steuererklärung nach dem neuen globalen Grundgesetzt. Der Staat, verteilt die Mittel aufgrund eines Verfahrens, in das alle Menschen einbezogen sind. Die Not der Zeit und die Erweiterung des Bewußtseins der Mehrheit erlaubten und verlangen es, alle Menschen auf ihre Fähigkeiten und Bedürfnisse zu durchleuchten....

With Jürgen Hillmer and Bruno Rückert. A fictitious farce on former opening speeches. An accumulation of opening speeches clichés to be read in the auditorium, in which we all were sitting. (KUR, DN, 21.3.68)

And now the always restless Lutz Mommartz has a new project: the windmill! Eight at specific angles to one another established projection screens are immersed by the use of eight film or slide projectors in a permanent image vortex, and above all a floating fan...

Test filming with Eddie Constantine in Wiesbaden for the movie "Tango through Germany". For years I was looking for an actor who strives steadfastly afar. Someone who is not going for specific goal, but celebrates in a ritual way that it is about something that concerns everyone. Someone who makes a mark, provoking as a performance artist and takes the liberty to swim against the current. In April 1979, I found myself sitting next to Eddie Constantine. I told him about the project. He...

Margret, seit mehr als 45 Jahren meine Lebensgefährtin, hasste es, fotografiert zu werden. Seit vier Wochen liegt sie mit Krebs im Hospiz. Am späten Abend ein Anruf, sie habe sich nackt gemacht, ich solle kommen, ein Foto von ihr machen, „ein Foto für die Kunst“. Irritiert fahre ich hin, aber ohne Kamera. Als ich sie vor mir sehe, begreife ich wie ernst es ihr ist. Am nächsten Tag erfüllt sich ihr Wunsch als wäre es meiner, womit sich auf wundersame Weise unser beider Leben erfüllt....

I threw the camera in the air and in this way I was able to express my aversion to conventional film show and skip my own limits. (LUTZ MOMMARTZ) "Selfshots" is the visual biography of an unconventional filmmaker. As a director, cinematographer and actor in one person, he points the camera on himself. He plays with her , throws it into the air, hurtling across the meadows, filmed his movements, his face and his hands and demonstrates in this way his adventurous relationship with a...
