|KABK Research Lab 'Trance & Moving Image' wins prize in EYE Film Museum
Congratulations to all participating students and teachers!!
On 28 February the KABK Research Lab 'Trance & Moving Image' received the award of Best Curated Programme within 'The Research Labs' in 'EYE on Art'.
The jury decided to award the KABK Research Lab programme with the prize because the concept of the programme was explored with cinematographic means and successfully transformed in a theatrical programme.
Best curated programme
'Two of the five programmes stood out in investigating in a thorough and consequent way the theme of their program and in the way they ‘translated’ their findings and productions into a program: the program of Piet Zwart/UvA and the KABK program.
The jury decided to award the KABK program with the award because the concept of the programme was explored with cinematographic means and successfully transformed in a theatrical programme. The jury appreciated the stronger focus on the cinematographic quality of the films and the programme as a whole. The films were all clearly related to the over-all theme of 'Trance and Moving Image’ and contributed in their own way to the artistic investigation and the presentation of the theme.
Some excellent films contributed to the succes of this programme and the jury wants to mention explicitly TRAIL, FILM (Kin Mun Chong), IN TRANCE-PORT (Sophie Daalman) an NEEM WINBANK (Tess de Graaf). Also the choice of the Nathaniel Dorsky film was appreciated and contributed to the concept and a rounded programme.'

The Research Labs in EYE on Art on 28 February and 16 May provide scope for a new generation of curators and artists to hone their skills. In these Research Labs, students from ten art academies and universities put together a programme involving their own work and films (including remixes) from EYE’s collection. The Research Labs do not follow a strict format and often result in a cultural crossover between film and other art forms.
