Video Portraits, Video Essays & Video Registrations of Event

In the Studium Generale programme you will find several commissioned video portraits made by Irene Constandse and Kees Veling. But you can also find video essays made by artists and registrations of various events in our video collection.
In aesthetics, art that makes you shudder is considered sublime. During this workshop, Laura Stoop applied the philosophy of the sublime to contemporary art. The sublime tells us a great deal about our society because it exposes our fears and fascinations. Moreover, sublime art reveals just how slight the difference is between fear and pleasure. Terror, astonishment and respect fight for precedence in her short lecture that features not only Milton’s Paradise Lost and the Dies Irae from Mozart’s Requiem but also the horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and the vampire series True Blood.


A disturbing day about those anxious gut feelings that are currently resounding throughout the arts and society at large.
