From 5 October to 1 December, EYE’s main exhibition space will be exclusively devoted to Looming Fire, the latest work by filmmaker and artist Péter Forgács. Based on EYE’s extensive collection of home movies, Forgács (b. 1950, Budapest) takes us through everyday life in the Netherlands East Indies at the height of the colonial period. Although we witness the ‘happy moments’ of colonial life: birthdays, parties, family outings, a trip to a native village, shops, schools; controversial issues are not shunned.
