Of A People Who Are Missing

On films by Danièle Huillet & Jean-Marie Straub. Exhibition and ciné-club
12 November to 20 December 2009
Extra City_Kunsthal Antwerp

OF A PEOPLE WHO ARE MISSING is a ciné-club to discuss the aesthetical and political significance of the films by Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub for contemporary image production. Huillet/Straub are among the most controversial, uncompromised and yet widely unknown filmmakers of both the presence and the history of cinema. Their films span over five decades and cover a wide range of topics, references and materials from arts, literature, theatre, and music. From November 12 to December 21 2009 OF A PEOPLE WHO ARE MISSING will open as a platform for both, the viewing and making of films. The exhibtion space in Extra City, Antwerp, is structured by five studios which will act as showrooms as well as independent production spaces. Each studio is used in a different configuration of archive material, film excerpts, actual footage and the critical discourse around it. Every Thursday to Saturday one studio will host invited guests and contributors for a series of screenings, lectures and debates.

Among the contributors are: Chantal Akerman, Pietro Bianchi, Manon de Boer, Robert Bramkamp, Vanessa Brito, Giulio Bursi, Rinaldo Censi, Merel Cladder, Anna Fiacciarini, Jack Henrie Fisher, Peter Friedl, Kim de Groot, Romano Guelfi, Tim Liebe, Laura Malacart, Sally Shafto, Ines Schaber, Eyal Sivan, Benoît Turquety, Barbara Ulrich, Klaus Volkmer, Susanne Weirich. Curated by Florian Schneider and Annett Busch.

Supported by the Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, NL. In cooperation with Timefestival 2009 and Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg 2009.
