EYE Museum – Béla Tarr – Till the End of the World: Béla Tarr is one of the world’s most influential film authors of the past thirty years. He made gorgeous continuous shots and made heavy movies like Turin Horse. After this movie he decided to quit filming. But especially for EYE he took out his camera again.

FOAM – Ren Hang – Naked/Nude: Ren Hang is one of my favourite photographers who I follow on Instagram for years. And we can finally see his work at FOAM. Ren Hang photographed naked shameless young adults (mostly Chinese) for the exhibition Naked/Nude with some pretty bizarre accessories like peacocks, fish, cherries, and flowers.
