Hito Steyerl - How not to be Seen
We all want to be noticed, but we are also being tracked all the time; going unnoticed has become practically impossible.

An evening filled with short films, music and talks about disappearing, visibility and invisibility and transformation.

The programme includes [sb1] short films by Semiconductor, Lernert & Sander, eteam and Hito Steyerl, a talk by Frank Schallmaier (de Volkskrant photo editor) and a two-part performance by Friday Wilkinson (aka Hidde van Schie).

Hito Steyerl, Ben Rivers, Wang Bing - EYE Art & Film Prize
The intersection between film and visual art is an important focus of exhibition policy at Eye. To underline this, Eye and the Paddy and Joan Leigh Fermor Arts Fund launched an annual prize in 2015 to promote new work by an artist/filmmaker who is making an important contribution to this interdisciplinary field.
