    Ida Lohman: Video Art as Puppet Show

    This presentation focuses on the recent digitisation project for the oeuvre of video artist Ida Lohman who graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Her most famous video work is Linnenkast, which won the prestigious Prix de Rome in 1994. Lohman’s short videos in which she often plays the lead, humorously and absurdly reflect on everyday life, whilst questioning society’s standards with regard to identity, family, beauty ideals and the role of women. After her death in 2007, Eye was bequeathed her collected works by her family and it is currently conserving the material. Two works will be screened: Gordina (1993) and Wonderful One (1991). The introduction will be provided by conservator Simona Monizza and trainee Martine Bouw.

    Another take on Just Around the Corner

    Just Around the Corner is one of the two feature films directed by scriptwriter Marion Frances. The only two extant copies, that can be found at Eye and The Library of Congress, are both incomplete. The two institutions are collaborating to create a digital reconstruction of these elements that augment each other well. The world premiere will be at the Women & the Silent Screen Conference on 4 June 2022 in New York. Comparison has revealed that the two copies were created from two different negatives. The presentation, by curator Elif Rongen and restorers Annike Kross and Jeroen de Mol will deal with the reconstruction process in more detail using a side-by-side demo reel to illustrate matters.
