“….from the press release,,,

In the 1960s, artists began to broaden the very concept of cinema – most notably Stan VanDerBeek, a pioneer of the Expanded Cinema practice. His visually stunning, walk-in installation ‘Movie-Drome’, which resembles a dome designed by R. Buckminster Fuller, will become accessible again for the first time in Europe on the occasion of this show. In the 1970s, Jack Goldstein appropriated not only Hollywood’s classic motifs but also its techniques, while contemporary positions like those represented by Douglas Gordon, Cindy Sherman or Keren Cytter engage with the aesthetic legacy of the classic film industry. Peter Doig’s posters from the series ‘Studio Film Club’ advertised the different films projected in the weekly film club he had founded in his Trinidad studio, and were created on the day of each screening. The 25 works featured in the show offer intriguing points of departure for engaging with the properties of art that explores, primarily, the cinematic medium and its representation, as well as the cinematographic event itself. “
