Boscher Theodor’s first work that brought him public attention consisted of a short movie ‘W.S. Borroughs – Gorillas on fire’ in collaboration with Walter Dahn. This debut was followed by further 16 mm films, which presented collective works with Walter Dahn, Imi Knoebel and Johannes Stüttgen. Boscher Theodor studied philosophy, an exercise in which he, in his own words, acquired “structural thought” as well as a certain inner autonomy. He was also trained as a cameraman. Theodor’s early contact with Walter Dahn, seemingly had a formative impact along with Joseph Beuys.
