The video installations of Argentine artist Osvaldo Romberg are on display in Theater of Transparency.

Microcinema released Theater of Transparency, 2000-2010, a documentary-like collection of three avant videos produced by Argentine artist Osvaldo Romberg, on DVD on July 26, 2011, for the list price of $30.

Created over the past decade, the works are Besame Mucho: A Hypertext About Love (1997-2003; 15 min), Jesus de Buenos Aires (2006; 18 min) and Romeo & Julieta According to Romeo (2008; 15 min).

Romberg’s video art explores the history of transparency and its relation to painting and electronic media video. The three works that comprise the Theater of Transparency movie were recently installed by the artist in the Mirror Room of the Neue Gallerie arn Landesmuseum Joanneum in Graz, Austria (2008), and the museum balcony of the ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany (2009).

The videos seen in the film were projected alongside and on top of the protagonists of each of the narratives, a series of humanoid dolls and puppets made of transparent acrylic.

Over the past five decades, internationally acclaimed modern artist Romberg has produced paintings, books, installations, films and architectural watercolors that explore the interpretation and representation of art and art history.
