Pioner Cinema » Q&A: “Jheronimus Bosch: Touched by the Devil”

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Hieronymus Bosch’s death, Pioner will begin showing the documentary “Jheronimus Bosch: Touched by the Devil.” After the Sunday, 17 April screening, there will be a Q&A with Matthijs Ilsink, art historian and curator of the largest exhibit of Bosch’s work, “Hieronymus Bosch: Visions of Genius,” and the film’s director, Pieter van Huystee. Screening at 15:30.

2016 will mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Jheronimus Bosch (1460 — 1516) one of the most celebrated painters of all times, known worldwide for his fantastic imagery of heaven and hell, at the same time filled with an extraordinary sense of humanity. For four years a team of Bosch experts traveled the world to examine all known Bosch paintings. With high-res macro, x-ray and infrared cameras they examine the wooden panels. For the first time we will be able to see behind the varnish, to penetrate into his paintings and to unveil the unseen creative process.

Screenings will take place on April 17, 19, 21, 23, 24 and May 1 as part of PERFORM film festival.
