Leuven’s M Museum is displaying two works by Flemish video artist Karel De Cock – Accepting the Image and Resonance – which form part of the Open M Exhibition which runs until 20 August.

Accepting the Image and Resonance both show the director’s fascination for the metropolis and western values. While Resonance is set in Brussels, Accepting the Image takes us to the mother of all great cities: New York. Women play a central role in this picture and more precisely their representation and identification through the media. Director De Cock contrasts scenes from everyday life with the world of glamour and by doing so questions our society. The film screened earlier at Visions du Réel and Rencontres Internationales. Resonance also screened at Rencontres Internationales and Transmediale.

Accepting the Image and Resonance are produced by Karel De Cock and Defilms.be. Accepting the Image received support from SCAM and Sint-Lukas Brussels.
