Nan Hoover (1931-2008) was born in New York, USA, and studied at the Corcoran Gallery School of Art in Washington. In 1969 she moved to the Netherlands and has since then participated in many exhibitions throughout Europe. Her career has involved teaching video at art schools including the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. It was in 1973 that Hoover started experimenting with video, both functioning as an extension of her painting practice and as a documentary medium. The work remains centered around linear, real-time scenes that are left relatively unedited. By using her own body as the primary artistic device in the works she is authoring, Hoover challenges dominant Western codes of representation, in which women are always the object and never the subject of the gaze.

Michel Banabila (Amsterdam 1961) is a sound artist, composer, and producer. Banabila's career kicked off with his album VoizNoiz (2000), which received international critical acclaim. He worked in Holland, Poland, South Africa, Russia, Japan, Spain and Belgium. Banabila has produced musical scores for numerous films, documentaries, theatre plays and choreographies and was awarded with the Edison Jazz Award in 2003. His music is absorbing, cinematic and atmospheric.

The evening will be introduced by DJ Concky Daglish (Rush Hour Records) who will be spinning quality electronics pre and post show.

Presented in collaboration with the Dutch Institute for Media Art.
