Bas Jan Ader, Ger van Elk, Ulay/Abramovic. Film als beeldend medium in de vroege jaren zeventig
Please note that the spoken language of this event will be Dutch.
Central to this evening is a generous amount of short films by Dutch artists who are investigating the medium film for the first time. Works that will be shown are created by, among others, Ger van Elk, Jan Dibbets and Bas Jan Ader, as well as Jan van Munster, Mari Boeyen, Peter Struycken and Hans de Vries. Introduced by freelance curator and art historian Nathalie Zonnenberg, whose specialization lies in the conceptual tendencies of the 60s and 70s.
During the early 70s, numerous artists discovered how the medium film could contribute to their creative practice. Whilst prominent tendencies of the art world in the 60s were taken into account, the artwork was understood as a “time-dependent fragment of reality”. Film is the perfect medium to visualize “movement, action and change” through time.
