Art, Artists and Film

The strict separation between art forms belongs to the past. In a continuous cross-fertilization, different art forms inspire, influence and reinforce each other, although sometimes they can not let to ruff or laugh with the other. During the first part of the evening we highlight artists whose practices can be seen as a amalgam of different diciplines. The second part focusses mainly on Duchamp and his unlimited practice. Starting with Anémic Cinéma, we describe his influence on the work of Maya Deren and Liliane Lijn.
