Moderator: [Karina Karaeva]
The evening with Sonja Wyss, one of the most influential Dutch video artists, will take place during the Cinema: New Device exhibition. Sonja Wyss' video installations and experimental movies carry on the tradition of the new Dutch wave and are featured at festivals and museums around the world. The event at NCCA is a unique opportunity to see her works for the first time in Russia, followed by her own commentary.
Sonja Wyss' artistic language is closely tied to surrealism. Her works border on the narrative that Wyss finds in the national myth and through studying a certain theme and turning it into a cinematic convention. During the event Sonja Wyss will show some of her works and speak about the new wave of documentary filmmaking, especially relevant for the Dutch visual culture.
