Eye
Film Museum / Amsterdam

Eye is guardian, pioneer and guide in the world of film and the art of moving images. It houses four cinemas, a large exhibition area, three unique meeting rooms, an education space, a shop, a bar-restaurant and a series of permanent presentations. What’s more, Eye manages the Dutch film heritage in a state-of-the-art building right next to Eye, where a collection of about 50,000 films is housed, digitized and restored. Furthermore, Eye manages an extensive national educational program and is responsible for the promotion of Dutch films abroad and the Dutch submission for the Academy Awards.

By combining the past, present and future of cinema, Eye provides both young and old with an insight into the art and power of the moving image with our pay-off being: “Eye shows you a new perspective.”

The Eye Collection consists of roughly 40,000 films as well as the so-called “film-related collections”: photos, posters, projection equipment, film music, as well as archives of filmmakers and businesses.

The collection spans the entire history of film and is expanded with old and new titles every year, from both the Netherlands and abroad. Eye is the only institute in the Netherlands that collects and provides access to film-related collections.

The impressive illustrated book presents the city of contrasts in a fascinating honesty that only an inhabitant of this city of millions can portray in such a direct way. (more…)

    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

    Publication
    Perimeter
    International
    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)
