Do people have examples of books, movies, music videos and other types of art that mix text/type in as well?

Ex - Books: Wizard of Oz, Cliver Barker's Arabat, Alice in Wonderland. Movies: Pillowbook, Schlinder's List, Momento. Graphic Novels: Watchmen, Maus. Fine artists: Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, Glenn Ligon, Magritte. I'm looking for as many examples as possible as I am trying to build an art course on the idea of Image and Text and how the two are worked together. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    I know more about painting and sculpture, so here are a few examples that come to mind:

    On Kawara

    Lawrence Weiner

    Joseph Kosuth

    Robert Smithson (I'm thinking especially of his "A Heap of Language", and also published Artforum essays which are considered artworks themselves)

    Hans Haacke (Shapolsky Manhattan Real Estate Holdings)

    Tracey Emin (Everyone I have Ever Slept With)

    And of course, it seems that the following would be important theoretical texts to consider:

    Roland Barthes, Image/Music/Text ("Death of the Author")

    Roland Barthes, Mythologies

    Michel Foucault, The Order of Things

    Ferdinand de Saussure, General Course in Linguistics

    Umberto Eco, A Theory of Semiotics

    Walter Benjamin, "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction"

    Sol Lewitt, “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art”

    Joseph Kosuth, "Art After Philosophy"

    Jacques Derrida, Writing and Difference ("Structure, Sign, and Play in the Discourses of the Human Sciences")
