Beatrijs Albers
In 1999 and 2000 Beatrijs Albers travels to the arid American desert on the borders of California, Nevada and Arizona.

_IMOVIE[3]_: SILVER LIPS / FOR ME

Els Opsomer
A few years ago Els Opsomer went to Palestine. There she shot the first of her three ‘_imovies_’ with the Apple software she uses to edit her photo-based digital videos. These films are video letters expressing feelings of estrangement, and they give evidence of the difference between the world as it is experienced and the objective world ‘out there’...

3 MINUTES OF DARKNESS

Edith Dekyndt
‘3 minutes of darkness’ gives an approach to the visual perception the individual has of the world from the viewpoint of the astronauts: the work shows the rotation of Earth from geostationary stations. We see a completely dark image, but the contours of the continents are spotlighted by the signs of human presence...

21 JULI

Axel Claes
Old Super8 images of the Belgian National Holiday celebrations in Brussels were edited by Axel Claes into a short snapshot. The short, volatile fragments give an impression of an occupied city, just when the parade, headed by king Baudouin/ Boudewijn, runs over the inner city, raising looks of awe and amazement with its military display...

4 POINTS LIMITÉS

Jacques-Louis Nyst
'4 points limités / La caméra est reliée au magnétoscope par un câble de 100 mètres’ is one of Jacques-Louis Nyst’s earlier experiences with the medium and one of the few videos of the first Nyst period not to use a canvas-like white surface as a background...

21 ÉTUDES À DANSER

Thierry De Mey
The question here is how to merge dancing footage with elements of fiction. What is the right tone, the golden proportion to tell and dance the stories without resorting to techniques of a musical or a ballet? New ways of telling a story: this is, without a doubt, a critical challenge for dance today...

_IMOVIE[2]_: IN-BETWEEN / SHIFTING

Els Opsomer
‘_Imovie_[2] in-between/shifting’ is the second video Opsomer made with the amateur software package ‘iLife’, supplied with Apple computers. The video consists of photographies of cities in Brazil and Senegal, which Opsomer visited...

(VOLCANO) ABOUT THE ANTI-CAPITALIST CARNIVAL

Charley Case
The crowd is on the move, dancing in the mud at a devilish pace, demonstrating ('make love not money'), writing their demands on their bodies ('we only want peace') or on walls (the body of the city) ... euphoria is mixed with struggle: the first frames go from a festive anti-globalization meeting to the destruction of a McDonald's...

'SUB-'

Hans Op de Beeck
This video installation, a 3 by 2.5m film projection, provides us with a view to an escalator in an endless downward movement. The cold, self-reflecting strips light slides towards us over the stairs, and betrays a downward movement. In this symmetrical image only the metal of the escalator stairs can be seen: no actors, no props...
