Do / Redo / Undo. 50 Years of Video Performance

WIELS

8/05 > 6/06
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday – 12:00 > 19:00
Sunday – 11:00 > 18:00

During the festival, the Wiels arts centre will present a statement of one of the most recent movements in the arts. With a selection of over 100 – mostly little or unknown – works or installations, Do / Redo / Undo will provide a survey of 50 years of video performance, making it a research project as much as a traditional exhibition. Do / Redo / Undo is an artistic and scientific archive, a review of snapshots of some of the most influential happenings and video performances of the past 50 years. Also shown in Wiels will be a series of films made by German film and theatre maker Christoph Schlingensief, whose latest theatre piece Via Intolleranza will be premiered at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts. Wiels will, therefore, offer an excellent and unique opportunity to take a look at some of his most remarkable and notable films – a chance of a lifetime!
