Focus on research

Belslijntje or the Re-imagination of a Memorial Site, Erasmus University College Brussels

The central threefold research question of this artistic research is: (1) what part did home video as a cultural practice play in the imagination of a shared past, (2) how does this same practice define our view of that past today and (3) how can you, as a film maker, develop a meta-reflective point of view regarding that source material.

The starting point for the investigation is the Belslijntje, a railway between Belgium and The Netherlands that was replaced by a bicycle path in 1989. With this decision the last remains of the social entity that had grown around the Belslijntje disappeared. What remained was a shared collective memory. That memory was represented by the inhabitants themselves in a rich corpus of analogue home videos filmed just before 1989.
