LA PASSERELLE

Jean-Claude Riga
This report for Canal Emploi is an illustration of Pierre Bourdieu’s theories on social capital and the influence of family background and social class in academic success. Bourdieu maintained that a working class child with the same intellectual capacities than a child out of a bourgeois milieu had less chances of succeeding in school...

JAMES ENSOR IN OOSTENDE CA 1920

Guillaume Bijl
The highly individual and visionary work of James Ensor (1860-1949), familiar for its masquerades, carnival scenes and grotesque caricatures, is not easily categorized under any modern genre. Ensor had close ties with Ostend, where he was born and continued to live, and it was the source of inspiration for many of his works...

FAVORITKA

Alina Zhdanova
Every time memories are thought back on, they get rewritten into new memories over and over. The experiences that get recalled for hundreds and thousands of times, turn into beliefs. Recalling and saving the memories, which get renewed and rewritten, one single line of memories could be followed. The theme of work is “Recalling”...

WOMAN WALKING

Charley Case
A screen split in three. A woman giving birth in hospital. A pregnant belly just a few hours before. And nothing but the feet and legs of a man (or woman?) walking through deserts, mud, rivers, over rocks and mountains, asphalt and sidewalks and over a city rooftop, where (s)he ultimately loses the balance and drops to the ground. Once again, birth and death meet....

FUMÉE

Angel Vergara
Vergara filmed smoke. However, he did not indicate where the smoke was coming from. During filming, only the smoke itself was caught on screen, against the background of a blue sky. The motif of smoke can be interpreted as a reference to the works of René Magritte and Marcel Broodthaers...

MONSIEUR EZIO BUCCI, SUPPORTER - CHEZ LE COIFFEUR

Jacques Lennep
Video, apart from photography and holography, was but one of the media Lennep made use of during the 1970s, as he was adding on to his ‘museum of men’. His human models were derived from all layers of the populations, but they shared a common obsession for collecting things or, at the very, least an unusual passion...
