Al weer het Internationaal Filmfestival Rotterdam, een videokunstenaar waarnaar ik erg nieuwsgierig was geworden vertoont in het kader van dat festival zijn kunsten:

Minimal cinema? Experimental cinema? Moving photography? None of these classifications really does justice to the work of Anri Sala. As Isaac Julien, last year’s Artist in Focus in Rotterdam, said in 1999: ‘The categories of fine art and cinema are outmoded ways of describing moving image culture. Film has always incorporated all the arts: some have embellished its journey to maturity, others have killed it. In a sense you could say cinema is dead and it’s up to artists to resurrect it.’
