Passages - Photography in Contemporary Video Art is an exhibition in three parts that concerns the dialectic between photographic and moving images in contemporary video art. It explores critical reflections on current issues such as globalization and environment, identity, history and memory. The three researchers Brianne Cohen, Jana J. Haeckel and Alexander Streitberger curated a selection of video works from the Argos collection taking place at the Museum of Louvain- la-Neuve, the Cultural Center Louvain-La-Neuve and on the University Campus.
Passages - Photography in Contemporary Video Art is an initiative by the research project "Photofilmic Images in Contemporary Art and Visual Culture" at UCL and the Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography (LGC) in collaboration with Argos. It is supported by the FNRS, UCL Culture, and the Centre culturel d’Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve.
