Chantal Akerman - Un Jour Pina m’a demandé (One Day Pina Asked…) (1983)

Who better to make a documentary about Pina Bausch than Chantal Akerman? Her 1976 classic Jeanne Dielman is not just a film but a choreography of the everyday, made manic through the stringency of its rehearsal. Akerman’s 1983 Un Jour Pina m’a demandé, follows Bausch’s Wuppertal, Germany–based troupe as they bring their compound of dance and theater, Tanztheater, to venues in Milan, Venice, and Avignon, France. The two make a fortuitous couple, their collaboration a pared instance of the art-and-dance world crossovers that epitomized New York’s Judson moment of two decades prior.

Broos Stoffels - Decap Drawing Device (2014)

The Decap Drawing Device can design record sleeves for Dance Organ music. Dance Organs are big machines containing different instruments which play live music and thereby replace the musician. Therefore I wanted to replace myself as a designer by a machine as well and created the Decap Drawing Device.

The designs are determined by the same system that defines the music played by dance organs, namely punched cards. In my machine they work as stencils whereas in the organ they contain the music score. By rotating both the blank underlying record sleeve and the stencil bobbin, a specific circular pattern is created.
