Taking its title from Luis Buńuel, the exhibition approaches the question of cinema from a critical and sometimes ironic perspective. Free of any fascination with the mass audience, it seeks to establish less evident relations between art and film, therefore limiting the number of works using moving image while including sculpture, photographs, performance et al. The chosen works, which are structured around two main axes - deconstruction of the cinematographic apparatus on the one hand (Jacques André, Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová, Andreas Reiter Raabe, Cory Arcangel) and appropriation on the other hand (Guillaume Paris, Assaf Gruber, Thomas Stimm, Danai Anesiadou) - attempt to absorb cinema into forms and questions related to the visual arts. The sizeable category of artists who make films is thus deliberately ignored. Moreover, none of the artists chosen here seems to be exclusively or even particulary interested in the film medium. Thus, their relation to film that is suggested in this presentation is not automatically traceable in their other works. In some cases, even, that relation simply did not exist before it was deliberately adduced by placing the works in the context of this exhibition. (quot. Pierre Bismuth, 2010)


Pierre Bismuth
Pierre Bismuth, born in Paris in 1963, lives and works in Brussels.
In 2005 he was awarded the Oscar in the category “Best Original Screenplay” for the film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”.
Pierre Bismuth’s often humorous works dismantle modern (mass) culture and its products and destabilize pre-established codes of perception; he pushes the viewer to become critical even when presented with cultural objects whose meanings appear self-evident. Drawing from art history and cultural references–from fashion to cinema–Bismuth uses all art mediums available, from collages and installations to video and screenwriting
