Pop Art: Casino Knokke

1970 00:05:30 b&w

A short report on the event surrounding Pop Art which Emile Langui organised in 1970 in the Casino of Knokke. Rather than an exhibition, the event was conceived as a situation, a biotope in which visitors and works are admitted like plants and fish in deep-sea water. Part of the BRT (Belgian radio and television broadcast network) television series ’Zoeklicht’ (’Searchlight’).
