  • Creator History
    Stephen Dwoskin initially began his career in graphic art, studying at New York University under artists Joseph Albers and Professor Willem de Kooning. Alongside his work in design, he discovered a passion for experimental cinema, which was to last a lifetime. He co-founded the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative in October 1966, now known as the LUX; from the 1970s to his death he produced a number of avant-garde feature films. Stephen Dwoskin often focussed on the theme of disability, alongside an ongoing look at the experience of pain and pleasure. This was of particular interest to Dwoskin, from age 9 he used crutches, and later a wheelchair, after contracting Polio.
