1. The luminous image - talking back to the media. The new media exhibition.
    Iconic exhibitions in the 20th century.

    In 1964, artists acquired a new instrument, the Sony Portapak video camera, that enabled them to make moving images, translate them artistically and distribute them; a revolution. This did not mean, however, that from that moment onward, video art was on show in Dutch museums - on the contrary.

    Yet there were serious attempts to offer video art a podium. The NOS, for example, produced special programmes with and about video artists. In the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, curator Dorine Mignot championed the medium and in 1985, two Amsterdam-based artists, Raoul Marroquin and David Garcia, took the initiative for the manifestation ‘Talking Back To The Media’.

    In this episode in the series ‘Iconic exhibitions in the 20th century’, art historian Sanneke Huisman provides some insight into the background to and developments in video art, whereby she draws a line from the start to now: artists in the eighties had to relate to television, and artists today have to relate to the Internet.

    Saskia Bos, who, as programme maker for the NOS and later as director of De Appel was directly involved in the development, discusses the emancipation of video art and the relationship with the political-social reality.

    The episode is supported with sources from the history of Dutch radio and television.

  2. Every spring EYE presents a theme programme. In 2016 the celebration of forty years of the subversive youth culture punk took center stage.

    In this documentation EYE looks back on four decades of punk to focus on what film specialists are referring to as the ‘cinematographic past of punk subculture’. The programme offered a mix of feature films, documentaries, bands, performances, spoken word shows. Dick Hebdige gave a lecture on the significance of punk as counterculture, from Sex Pistols to Pussy Riot.
    The theme programme of 2017 will be Cinema Erotica

  3. Early in 2017, the Stedelijk Museum will show the exhibition Nalini Malani: Transgressions. The heart of the exhibition is the installation Transgressions, a unique combination of painting, video, and moving shadows that Malani terms “video/shadow play.”

    In collaboration with Malani, several additional works have been selected to be shown. These works provide a contextualization of the themes and variety of literary and classical sources brought into play in Transgressions.

    A very important departure point for this exhibition is the extensive publication In Medias Res, Inside Nalini Malani’s Shadow Plays (Hatje Catz, 2016), by Mieke Bal.

    In this video Nalini Malani guides you through her exhibition, curator Margriet Schavemaker speaks about the background of the work and Mieke Bal shares her vision on the importance of Nalini Malani’s work.

    Nalini Malani: Transgressions
    18 MAR - 18 JUN 2017

  4. Interview with Tacita Dean, on her work FILM that was part of the exhibition Celluloid. Tacita Dean, João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, Rosa Barba, Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder in EYE Filmmuseum (Amsterdam September 2016 – January 2017).

    From 17 September to 8 January 2017, EYE Filmmuseum presented the international group exhibition Celluloid, featuring work by artists who use and reflect on the qualities of analogue film. At a time of rapid and almost total digitization of the moving image, the participating artists focus attention on the remarkable qualities of analogue film stock and attendant equipment.

    From Tacita Dean, the film installation FILM was presented. In 2011, she made for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern this huge and sensational 35mm installation, now for the first time on show in the Netherlands.

    Tacita Dean is an active campaigner for the preservation of celluloid material. In the interview, she explains how FILM came about. She also elaborates on the important features of analog film: phenomena such as light, time and movement, but also characteristic features such as the perforation, sound and the standard ‘landscape' format.

  5. Interview with the Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr and Director of Exhibitions Jaap Guldemond about the exhibition Till the End of the World at EYE Filmmuseum.
    Béla Tarr is widely regarded as one of the most influential film authors of the past thirty years. He is a master of the magnificent long take, a master of wonderfully shot, melancholic films that express the human condition. For the exhibition at EYE, Tarr, who after his 2011 film The Turin Horse decided not to make any more films, has picked up the camera one more time to shoot his very last scene. It is his anger about how refugees are treated in Europe, and especially in Hungary, that drove him to make a statement.
