THE FINE ARTS

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
In ’The Fine Arts’, Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby mock their own lack of inspiration: a woman confesses that she’s speaking French in the nude because she has no good ideas but admits that her solution is unoriginal.

THE MENDI

Steve Reinke

VOYAGE À PARIS [ENGLISH VERSION]

Jef Cornelis
The myth of ’Modern Life’ has its origins in Paris. Going to the City invariably resonates with an imaginary trip to Paris. ’Voyage à Paris’ is about looking and being looked at, about fashion and consumption, and about people’s fascination with Paris, ’the capital of the 19th century’...

DIMBU

Harald Thys - Jos De Gruyter
Starting off from the proposition: “If it’s possible to do 100 km in one hour, it must be possible to do 100.000 km in 1.000 hours”, a number of experiments are developed with the realisation of this axiom as a final purpose. Three experts report on the different tests with slides, overhead projections and video....
