Curating: Shared History / Decolonising the Image, Video Lounge

The Video-lounge offers a continuous daily programme of documentary, essayistic, fiction, amateur and artists’ films. The films and videos have been selected by researchers from different backgrounds and well as by artists, curators and film collectives from around the world. The video-lounge helps to underline the multiple perspectives needed in order to reflect upon the complex issue of decolonisation and its images. It will show contemporary viewpoints from the Middle East, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, Algeria and New Zeeland among others.  Each guest has selected three films, which will be screened from 13.00 on. Most of these films have never previously been screened in the Netherlands.

Curated by Delphine Bedel. Films and videos selected by Francesco Bernardelli (Torino), Digital Art Lab (Holon), Daniel du Bern (Wellington) & Tessa Giblin (Auckland/Amsterdam), Ratiba Hadj-Moussa (York University, Toronto), Steve Pillar/Off Stream (Jakarta), Greg Streak/Pulse (Durban), Ruangrupa (Jakarta), Basak Senova/Nomad, (Istanbul); and films by Jayce Salloum (Vancouver), Susan Youssef (New York), Melvin Motti (Amsterdam) …
