BEWARE PEOPLE

Luc Gobyn
‘Beware People’ is part four of ‘Une Victoire Americaine’. The video shows how the eye of a digital camera tracks the roads for signs of life in a landscape. The running text is derived from the pamphlets, which were dropped from the Afghan skies for the Afghan citizen at the start of the American invasion...

LA COLLECTION QUI N'EXISTAIT PAS

Joachim Olender
In June 2011, Herman Daled decides to sell off his collection of conceptual art. The MoMA in New York has proposed to buy it from him. A man looks back at his past, and that of an aesthetic and philosophic movement that marked the second half of the twentieth century.

PARKING 2004

Aurore Dal Mas
Aurore Dal Mas is fascinated with the vocabulary that is used in popular music, as a peculiar reflection by and on mankind. Before this she made ‘Show Room’, a pseudo-autobiographical video clip based on a song by Julio Iglesias. The sweet, sensuous words take on a preposterous and cynical undertone in the mouth of a postiche chansonnier...

ECHO VALLEY

Steve Reinke
An echo is the return of an originating voice in a distorted and diminished way. In ‘Echo Valley’, there are no originating voices, but only endless, undiminished echoes. This slight, frothy videotape manages to juxtapose high and low culture idioms in a way that undermines their respective implications and creates new hybrids....

LA FEMME AU SANG CANNIBALE

Eddy Luyckx
"The Woman with Cannibal Blood" appears to be the slow unfolding of a story. A very simple story of four successive generations, from the author’s grandfather to his son. A succession disrupted by the director’s departure and by his desire to live a different life. A story whose end we won’t know : Jonas is five years old, with his whole life before him...

RON BURRAGE HITCHCOCK DOUBLE

Johan Grimonprez
‘Ron Burrage Hitchcock Double’ is an extract of a larger project of Johan Grimonprez about Hitchcock doubles. It shows the 'making of': the artist is visible throughout the tape, giving instructions, dialoguing with his 'model', Ron Burrage...

VIVA

Karen Vanderborght
This film seems to be an ode to the free fall. It is moreover a mortuary cinematic card made by Vanderborght for a friend who jumped from his balcony in the village where he was born. So the memory of this village, this paradisiacal holiday resort of the filmmakers’ childhood, became more vacant than ever....

AFTER EMPIRE

Herman Asselberghs
A search for the alternative to an image of meaning, inspired by Antonio Negri’s and Michael Hardt’s ‘Empire’. The insights from this politico-philosophical study on the contemporary world serve as a starting point for a reflection on positive forms of collective resistance and emancipatory representations in times of war...

THE VASES

Messieurs Delmotte
In an idyllic green landscape, vases seem to be growing from the trees. Messieurs Delmotte however is up for destroying them. Simply shot with a fixed camera, this performance is as humorous as it is appaling at the very same time. This work is part of the series The Mental Reason Vol. 1...

THE ROSES

Messieurs Delmotte
Messieurs Delmotte goes to a public garden and with a pair of gardening shears he cuts all the roses from a rose bed. This work is part of the series What's Done, Evil's Done / Ce Qui est Fait, le Mal est Fait...
