‘Caiyou riji (Crude Oil)’ by Wang Bing
2008, 840 min, CN, digital video, Eng. subtitles
As Artist in Focus, Wang Bing is a guest in Ghent during the Courtisane festival.
Courtisane is a platform dedicated to audio-visual arts. From a contemporary issue about the potential of cinema as a landscape for possible ways of showing, experiencing, seeing and looking, Courtisane wishes to explore the relationships between image and real world, aesthetics and politics, and experiment and commitment. Besides organising an annual festival, Courtisane also offers a continuous and broad program consisting of presentations and reflective activities.
March 28 > April 1, 2018
The 17th edition of the Courtisane festival takes place on several locations in Ghent: Minard Schouwburg, Sphinx, KASK, Paddenhoek and, for the very first time, Gouvernement.
