Thijs Kauffmann, film still "It's Jazz" 2016/2023
For 'It's jazz', Thijs Kauffmann filmed nocturnal Amsterdam from a car with a 16 mm film camera without the lens. This process leads to a hypnotic experience of shape and colour further enhanced by the intense tones of the street sound. Alongside Kauffmann, Wolfgang Messing shows new paintings of metropolitan life. The beautiful and less beautiful sides of existence in a big city are captured by him meticulously yet with a velvet touch. The artists meet each other in an experience you want to be part of as a viewer.
