The Close, a new video work by David Claerbout has been added to the Concertgebouw Brugge collection. Intended as a short, emotional history of the camera, The Close reflects on what Claerbout calls ‘dark optics’: a profound if chaotic recalibration happening in our time, of the beliefs we share in regards to image, information and language. For the premiere of The Close, Arvo Pärt’s Da pacem Domine will be performed live by the Flemish Radio Choir.
