Dromen en obsessies in de kunst van Jan Svankmajer
Film expert Jan Doense gives a lecture on the dreams and obsessions in the art of master animator Jan Švankmajer. Together with a screening of Conspirators of Pleasure.
Steaks, pebbles, iron locks: master animator Jan Švankmajer (Prague, 1934) can bring anything to life. His films are filled with obsession, lust, horror and eroticism, all underpinned by an undercurrent of abuse of power. Eye Filmmuseum presents the exhibition Jan Švankmajer - The Alchemical Wedding devoted to the work of Czech surrealist and master animator.
