Thursday 14 March 2019
Markenplein 1 | Cinema, 2nd floor
Japanese artist Yuki Okumura will discuss how he has positioned himself in the process of his film making, and how he has staged lectures and interviews with simple yet particularly interventional instructions and employed them as materials for his projects tackling the notion of individuality that is defined by language and based on our physicality, where film’s very nature of framing time and space plays a key role. During the lecture Yuki will screen some of his work.
