Poster Eye on Art Zinsbegoocheling

Film is the principal medium to play with our perceptions and can erase the boundary between illusion and reality. The December issue of De Gids is dedicated to this theme and created the point of departure for this exceptional evening during which authors, poets and artists will each present their take on delusion in their own unique way.

Eye will screen the recently rediscovered and restored film Europa (1931) by Stefan and Franciszka Themerson and The Great Train Robbery (1903, Edwin S. Porter). There will also be a performance by magician Chris Bordet. Featuring Maria Barnas, Dirk van Weelden, Basje Boer, Asha Karami and Alma Apt.
