South African artist William Kentridge had his breakthrough a couple of years ago with ten animation films, all released in one series under the name of 10 Drawings for Projection (1989-2011), which he donated to the Eye filmmuseum. The films all covered the history of South-Africa. These films are now being screened at the Eye, together with the O Sentimental Machine (2015) film installation holding historical recordings by the Russian Leon Trotski. Kentridge will also be one of the guests at the Holland Festival, taking place simultaneously with this exhibition.
Inez de Coo (1982) lives and breathes cinema. She studied at art academies in The Hague and London after which she began working as a professional contemporary video artist. During her Film and Photographic Studies she started researching the architecture of cinema. When she’s not working she’s discussing politics or trying to solve world problems. This hobby also reflects in her programming, resulting in a pick of exciting cinema and visual arts.
