“A multi-vision meditation” is the working title for a new video installation by Carmen McGlinn + Sonja van Kerkhoff for the LIS-VHS-FE event.

Niek Hilkmann and Sandra Gnajtovic have made two new films using VHS and the evening will be a Leiden International Short -VHS- Festival Experience with a premiere of their new VHS films, plus a showing of Sonja’s VHS films made in the 1990’s and Carmen’s performance “Through the Window” which incorporates Hitchcock’s film “Rear Window” on VHS.
