Phantom City Films – Kim Bouvy /

Surprise Book Launch – Marc Bijl

Kim Bouvy talks to radio producer/journalist Marten Minkema about the contrast between promotional films for Rotterdam and the image that the city is given when it serves as a background for feature films and crime series. She shows a number of historical promotional films that inspired her to make her installation for the exhibition Source Material, such as ‘Rotterdam’ directed by Eimert Kruidhof after a scenario by Jan Blokker from 1962.

By now Marc Bijl is no longer a resident of Rotterdam having been entirely Berlin-ized. Still he returns to the city where his artistic roots lie to present his recently published monograph. His book In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up (NAI Publishers/ DA2) provides an overview of the most important works produced by Bijl in the past ten years. At the same time it is an artist’s book to which Bijl also makes his creative contribution. The evening will close with a DJ set by none other than the artist himself; Marc Bijl.
