Past MIF events


Kurt d’Haeseleer

Kurt created the film Long Grass which was part of the Once Upon a Story events. These were part of MIF13. For more information, please visit the event page by following the link in the left hand panel.

Kurt is the artistic director of the Werktank, a production house for media art in Bierbeek that has its roots in the former artist collective the Filmfabriek. He has produced several videos and (interactive) installations, e.g. Scripted Emotions, Fossilization and S*CKMYP, which took part in international festivals and shows in Rotterdam, Tokyo, Montreal, Paris and Berlin. Kurt also works regularly as a video designer for theatre, dance and opera. His work focuses on the visualisation of the dynamic of information. Special effects play an important role in his work that can best be described as a ‘pixel drama’ and which can be found in the borders between painting, video clips, cinema and performance. In his work the special effect is the message. He is well known for his extreme video manipulations; manipulating images by forcing them to react to the parameters of other images. With this approach, he can only partly foresee how the image will appear. The result is a process that strongly resembles developing analogue photographs, where it is always a surprise to see the result, or even alchemy, but that is in fact entirely digital.
