Elke maand presenteert op deze pagina een gastcurator een artistiek (film)werk van een beginnende of relatief onbekende maker dat zowel politieke als poëtische kwaliteiten heeft. Joris Ivens was tegelijkertijd zowel een politieke als een poëtische filmmaker. Die twee kwaliteiten stonden niet tegenover elkaar, maar liepen in elkaar over. ‘Al mijn films hebben als grondpatroon dat mensen ergens door bewogen worden. Door hun verlangens naar vrijheid, door het water, de wind. Er is geloof ik geen verschil tussen Ivens die de wind filmt en Ivens die revoluties filmt’, zei Ivens in 1976. Vanuit die visie willen wij hier nu ruimte maken voor (film)kunstenaars die ook op het snijvlak van 'politiek' en 'poëzie' werken. Hoewel we met roulerende curators werken, ben je altijd vrij om je eigen werk voor te stellen aan ons of jezelf aan te bieden als curator als je een bepaald werk van iemand in de schijnwerpers wilt zetten.
