Chantal Akerman

Chantal Akerman (Brussels, Belgium, 1950) is a filmmaker. A minimalist esthetic predominated in her early films, which usually adopted a feminist viewpoint or set out to explore the urban space. In her installations she shows sections or sequences from a film simultaneously on different monitors, in order to rearticulate elements of her cinematic work and question the conditions of spectatorship.
