Twenty-five years ago, BENT partner/director Chel White made what would become a seminal work in his career. Historically, it turned out to be the first noteworthy animated film to make use of directly photocopying people’s faces, hands and other body parts. “Choreography for Copy Machine (Photocopy Cha Cha)” is currently screening at the Van Gogh Museum as part of a curated program directly inspired for inclusion in the Museum’s exhibition “Prints in Paris.” The program is composed by experimental films, artist’s videos, documentaries and animations that pay tribute to the aesthetics of classic art prints or that are created utilizing some of the techniques directly associated with printmaking (etching, collage, xerographic printing…). The selection includes recent and classic productions by international filmmakers and video artists such as David Lynch, Lotte Reiniger, Larry Jordan, Martha Colburn, Orosz Istvan, Chel White, Johan Rijpma and Gregoire Dupond.Films at Van Gogh Museum
