For the background evening Bram De Jonghe talked about his inspirations in relation to the works displayed in1646. He wanted to evoque a mental place of production and exposure of art at the same time through the presentation of excerpts of video’s and film. Some of these videos were made in the studio and others were excerpts out of film.
Excerpts that were shown and discussed are: Elegy of a voyage by Alexander Sokurov, The mirror (behind the scenes) of Andrej Tarkovsky, Monsieur Poulet by Jean Rouch Cocorico, and work of Jonathan Meese.
One of the topics De Jonghe talked about is unintentional humour and the offering of a counter-narrative.
