FONDAZIONE PRADA PRESENTS THE PROJECT
“SOGGETTIVA LUC TUYMANS”
Fondazione Prada presented “Soggettiva Luc Tuymans”, a film project organized in collaboration with the CINEMATEK - Royal Belgian Film Archive in Brussels and conceived by artist Luc Tuymans, curator of the exhibition “Sanguine. Luc Tuymans on Baroque”.
Tuymans’ selection includes nine feature films and seven short films that will be shown in Fondazione Prada Cinema until 15 February 2019.
These films investigate universal themes like power, revenge and greed, conveying an original political vision, one that is cynical and not optimistic about the human condition.
The presentation of the new series of “Soggettiva” took place on Friday 14 December
2018 at the Fondazione Prada Cinema in the form of a conversation between
Tuymans and the film director Hans-Jürgen Syberberg, followed by the projection of the firstpart of Syberberg’s Hitler, ein Film aus Deutschland (Hitler, a Film from Germany, 1977).
The film program selected by Luc Tuymans (Belgium, 1958) – which will be also presented at the CINEMATEK - Royal Belgian Film Archive in Brussels in March 2019 – includes movieswhich marked the artist’s intellectual and artistic development at the time they were released and which he considers crucial for young generations for their “physical intelligence”,“psychological and pictorial features”, and modernity. These films investigate universal themes like power, revenge and greed, conveying an original political vision, one that is cynical and not optimistic about the human condition.
