Marlene Dumas Goes to the Movies‬ (excerpt). (video) Amsterdam: Eye, 2014

In conjunction with the retrospective: Marlene Dumas – The Image as Burden at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Marlene Dumas has curated three evenings of cinema for EYE, with the themes ‘close-up’, ‘collage’ and ‘couples’.

This video shows Marlene Dumas’ talk during the final evening with the theme ‘couples’, a motif that often crops up in her work and is expressed in many forms (male-female/child-mother/brother-sister/black-white, relationships, etc.).
