With the focus on his work at CINEMATEK and Courtisane Festival and the subsequent screenings of Mrs. Fang in six different cities, Wang Bing will be in the spotlights in Belgium from the end of March to the beginning of May. However, in the Netherlands, a selection of his work will also be on view at EYE Amsterdam in an exhibition and in their cinema. From March 24 through May 27, the exhibition brings together the work of the past three winners of the EYE Art & Film Prize: Wang Bing, Ben Rivers and Hito Steyerl. An extensive programme of films, talks and events will accompany the expo.
“Cinema can’t get more iconic than this, as the Ta’ang, made itinerant by war, create shelter with whatever they can find, which usually means sticks and stones. Wang watches as a group tries to build a frame for a tarpaulin roof with bamboo poles scavenged from what grows along the road.
