Chantal Akerman (Belgium, 1950-2015) was one of the first film directors to switch to the visual arts, in the mid-1990s. The transition would mark the start of a second – parallel – career. By the early 1970s Chantal Akerman had grown into one of the most important feminist avant-garde filmmakers of her generation. She discovered the possibilities of exhibition spaces in 1995, when she screened her film 'D'Est', originally a documentary, as a large spatial installation on 24 monitors. This publication focuses on Chantal Akerman's spatial works of art and various authors discuss her highly personal oeuvre.
