The man who wanted to classify the world by Françoise Levie( Visual )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1934, a Belgian visionary named Paul Otlet conceived of a library with no physical books whose contents could be viewed on a screen. His obsession was to classify, encode and unify books and documents published all over the world. Over the years, he and his staff would fill in 12 million index cards. His classification system is regarded today as similar to hypertext, which enables us to navigate the internet. A pacifist and an internationalist, Otlet was one of the driving forcesbehind the League of Nations. He persuaded the architect Le Corbusier to design a World City dedicated to Peace, Knowledge and Fraternity. This beautiful film interweaves a vast fund of recently discovered documents from his archive with autobiographical material to create a fascinating piece of intellectual history

Anna and Vincent( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1890, 42-year-old painter Anna Bloch visits the Annual Salon des XX in Brussels, and buys a painting by an unknown artist named Vincent Van Gogh. He dies later that same year. She remains the only person to have ever purchased one of his paintings during his lifetime. Six months later, Anna buys a second painting by Van Gogh and becomes the first person to acknowledge his skill and importance as an artist. A painter herself, Anna hangs both Van Goghs in her studio, to use as inspiration. Instead, she spends many years painting in their shadow, unable to live up to the genius she admires. Finally, fully defeated by the strength and audacity of both paintings, she sells them, to free herself of the burden of living up to their standard. The story of Anna, an unrealized artist, and her relationship to one of the most famous artists of all time, is told in this charming film that juxtaposes her life in grey, industrial Belgium, with that of Van Gogh's in sunny, Southern France. Anna was the first person to ever purchase a Van Gogh, but just like so many who came after her, Van Gogh's work resonated so deeply within her, that her life was forever changed

Mass moving, 1967-1976 : kunst op straat( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De kunstenaars van de Vlaamse artistieke beweging Mass moving hadden een duidelijk ideaal: de kunst naar de straat brengen, weg uit de stoffige musea en galeries. De acties van Mass moving waren speels en origineel: vlinders vrijlaten in Venetië, met een 'wandelende bus' over straat. Maar in 1976 gaat de beweging letterlijk in vlammen op
Panamarenko: Multimiljonair!( Visual )

Panamarenko : la magie de l'art by Françoise Levie( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Né en 1940 à Anvers en Belgique, ami de Joseph Beuys et de Marcel Broodthaers, Panamarenko est un des artistes les plus importants et les plus originaux de ces dernières décennies. Il imagine des objets poétiques étranges tels que des vaisseaux spatiaux, des sous-marins ou encore des soucoupes volantes qui semblent fonctionner, selon un schéma scientifique mûrement réfléchi. Il réalise quelques oeuvres mythiques, à la fois par l'histoire ou le mystère qui les entoure, leur côté étrange venu d'ailleurs, mais aussi par leurs dimensions exceptionnelles. Dans ce film, grâce à la 3D et aux images virtuelles, nous voyons évoluer deux de ses oeuvres majeures : l'Aeromodeller qui survole les Alpes et le Scotch Gambit, qui remonte l'Escaut devant la ville d'Anvers. C'est sans doute aussi la première fois qu'il accepta de travailler à ses oeuvres devant la caméra [Source : jaquette]
