EYE presents the exhibition ‘Johan van der Keuken / Up to the light. Filmmaker and photographer’. The exhibition’s line of approach is the extraordinary way in which Van der Keuken brought together contrasting images in his films and observed a world in constant transition. Always on his travels but also close to home, Van der Keuken intercut his observations in Africa, Asia or Latin America with similar or indeed diametrically opposed situations. The exhibition also shows that Van der Keuken was one of the first filmmakers to attempt a cinematic translation of time into space.

Johan van der Keuken (1938-2001) was a man with a remarkable double talent, who filmed with a photographer’s eye and shot photographs with the eye of a filmmaker. EYE is showing his films and a large number of vintage photographic works. Van der Keuken built up an artistically interesting and socially engaged body of work, which demonstrates a clear consistency in form and content. Always on his travels but also close to home, Van der Keuken intercut his observations in Africa, Asia or Latin America with similar or indeed diametrically opposed images or situations. On large freestanding screens, the exhibition shows how Van der Keuken combined different sequences into a single film and how he allows different images to contrast with each other.
