CINEMATEK is more than just a film museum or a movie theatre. The museum explains the invention of film while their archives contain one of the largest movie collections in the world.
This year, CINEMATEK welcomes Floris Vanhoof, well─known for his performances and installations that mix sound, image and light. Passionate about the history of sound and cinema inventions, and in love with popular culture, the artist creates new sequences from old media, resulting in a journey both nostalgic and futuristic between cinema, image and music.
Come and discover several installations echoing our museum collection, including a zoetrope tweaked by the artist, The Liquid Computer comprised of a Leslie amplifier and geometric cardboard structures, his Fossil Locomotion projection reviving fossils collected during his childhood, and also a personalization of the windows of our Wunderkammer, making the link between prehistory and the future of cinema. During Museum Night Fever the artist will give us several screenings his latest film in which he modulates the projection speed live... through a device, The Brainwave controlled film projector, which captures his brainwaves.
