FWO-project 'Marcel Broodthaers and Cinema'
This project focuses on the multiple relations between Belgian artist Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976 ) and cinema. Apart from surveying and analyzing his many films and film installations, it investigates the references Broodthaers made to the medium of film. Moreover, the project situates the artist’s film practice in the context of both contemporaneous trends in experimental cinema and critical theory (institutional critique, apparatus theory and media archaeology).
