Doe het zelf: kunstenaars produceren films

Fiona Tan: DIY: artists create feature-length films

Fiona Tan works at the intersection of visual art and film. Where lie the differences, what are the pitfalls and opportunities? Fiona Tan invited a number of other artists working in the same field: Melvin Moti, Manon de Boer, Erik van Lieshout and Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan.

Together, they will discuss their experiences and ideas. A conversation regarding the nuts and bolts of filmmaking seen through the eyes of visual artists.

Visual artist Melvin Moti made Dreamlife, his first feature-length film in 2020, based on the story of a French researcher who spent months alone in a cave studying the effects on the human body and psyche.

Artist Manon de Boer, who is known for her films and video installations, lives and works in Brussels. She co-founded Auguste Orts, an artist-run platform for the production and distribution of video art and film.

Erik van Lieshout makes drawings, collages, photographs, films and video installations in which everything comes together. In his films he explores politics, art and himself - with a sense of humor. Recent films include Beer (2020), Art Blasé (2021) and René Daniëls (2021).

As an artist duo, Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan make films that explore cultural and geopolitical landscapes. In 2018, they released Stones Have Laws, their film about the world of Maroons in Suriname.

Following this programme, at 21:45, Fiona Tan’s film History’s Future will be screened. Tickets for this screening are available separately.
