Film screening of The Phenomenon
(James Fox, 2020) with an introduction by UFO-researcher Bram Roza about the film and his own documentary-in-progress, De UFO’s van Soesterberg
For the first event in the public programme in the context of the first Public Research Residency at Looiersgracht 60 we are pleased to present a film screening related to UFOs and the (un)imaginable in space. Presenting a selection of films from his collection, Bram Roza, graphic designer and UFO-researcher, will introduce his fascination for UFO's, tell about his documentary-in-progress and screen some exclusive preview clips. Subsquently, we will screen James Fox's documentary The Phenomenon
(2020) in full. Following the film screening there will be an opportunity for a Q&A with Roza and the artists-in-residence.
In collaboration with Radical Reversibility
, the first edition of the Public Research Residency
brings together artists Doina Kraal
and Roger Cremers
for the production of their collaborative project, Spiritus – Archiving the (Un)imaginable
. This project is a continuation of an existing conversation and body of research surrounding time travel, the universe, archives, music, sound and storytelling. Working between installation, performance and interdisciplinary practice, Kraal and Cremers will explore the representation of the universe and the stories that are told to describe different phenomena, histories and future scenarios.
Apart from time spent in production, Kraal and Cremers will collaborate with Radical Reversibility and Looiersgracht 60 to present a varied public programme to complement and expand on their research and artistic production. Each Saturday from 20 August to 10 September the public is invited to attend events hosted by the artists and special guests.
The film screening will be held on Saturday August 20, 2022 from 8–10 PM.
Doors open at 7:30 PM. Visitors are welcome to see the work-in-progress by Doina Kraal and Roger Cremers in the exhibition space before attending the screening.
