The exhibition focuses on the increasing affinity between video and cinema. The total rejection of Hollywood style and cinematic language of the 1960s and 1970s gradually turned in the 1990s to complex relations of enchanted fascination and dismissal.
All the cinematic characteristics that made cinema into a thrilling medium are present here: high-volume emotions, high production value and a rich, all-encompassing soundtrack. Participating artists: Pierre Bismuth, Aukje Dekker, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Jesper Just, Tom Pnini, Julian Rosefeldt, Guido van der Werve, Francesco Vezzoli.
