Jonathan Harris Retrospective & Top 10

IDFA will present the world’s first retrospective of Jonathan Harris’ work including his early sketchbooks, interactive works, and his latest project about rituals.

In honor of American internet art pioneer Jonathan Harris, IDFA is presenting an exhibition that brings together 10 projects he created in the last 15 years. Harris is one of the most significant artists and innovators to emerge in the digital era. He has achieved widespread recognition for projects such as the interactive We Feel Fine, The Whale Hunt and I Love Your Work.

In addition to the retrospective, the festival is screening the artist’s Top 10 favorite documentary projects. Following in the footsteps of filmmakers like Werner Herzog, Pirjo Honkasalo and Errol Morris, Jonathan Harris has made an eclectic selection that includes classics of non-fiction cinema, as well as a book, a radio project, a video game and an internet platform.

This program is made possible with support from the Mondriaan Fund.
