Johan van der Keuken: Up to the light. : Filmmaker and photographer
AMSTERDAM  •  EYE Film Institute Netherlands  •  Ongoing
Johan van der Keuken (1938-2001) was a man with a double talent, who filmed with a photographer’s eye and shot photographs with the eye of a filmmaker. EYE is showing his films and a large number of photographic works and offers insight into how Van der Keuken made his films. Van der Keuken built up an artistically interesting and socially engaged body of work, which demonstrates a clear consistency in form and content. Always on his travels but also close to home, Van der Keuken intercut his observations in Africa, Asia or Latin America with similar or indeed diametrically opposed images or situations. On large freestanding screens, the exhibition shows how Van der Keuken combined different sequences into a single film and how he allows different images to contrast with each other. His method is already apparent in the cinematic portraits he made of artists such as Lucebert and Tajiri in the early sixties.
