Chantal Akerman - Passages Eye Filmmuseum

In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. 

Eye Filmmuseum is presenting a major solo exhibition of work by Chantal Akerman. Akerman was one of the first film directors who made the switch to visual art. She rose to fame in the 1970s as a feminist avant-garde filmmaker, and midway through the 1990s she discovered the possibilities of the art gallery. In 1995 she created a large spatial installation on 24 monitors based on D’Est, a film she originally made as a documentary. This marked the start of her ‘second career’ within the world of visual art.

The exhibition features eight of Akerman’s film installations. In addition to D’Est, they include a.o. Woman Sitting after a Killing (2001)Tombée de nuit sur Shanghai (2007-2008) and her final work NOW (2015).

The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated publication with texts by Chantal Akerman herself, supplemented with essays by Cyril Béghin, Dana Linssen and Roos van der Lint.
