1950, Brussels, Belgium — 2015, Paris, France


From the first films she shot in 1968 to her last installations in 2015, filmmaker, writer, actress and artist Chantal Akerman developed a body of work that lies at the intersection of fiction, documentary, experimental film and the film essay.
By constantly reinventing her formal vocabulary, her multi-faceted work transcends traditional narrative norms. Her highly individual approach to questions of borders, migration, identity and the relationship between personal and public space draws on all the potential of image, time, space and performance.
