During Antwerp Art Weekend, The Constant Now showcases the work of four intriguing artists from different parts of the world, all working with film. Each day features a new film, ranging from artist films to documentaries, screened continuously and accompanied by live conversations with the makers. 

Ndayé Kouagou, Rosine Mbakam, Kevin Osepa, and Brahim Tall, each with their unique approach, push the boundaries of film by representing and centering people of color (POC), reclaiming visual and narrative sovereignty. This event is not just about the films, but also about the conversations and the collective reflection they inspire, especially within institutional frameworks that (cl)aim to be inclusive. 

The Constant Cinema is commissioned by Antwerp Art Weekend, curated and moderated by Magali Elali, founder of The Constant Now.

BRAHIM TALL

‘TUKULEUR’

2022, 16 min, Talk: 14:00 - 15:00

'Tukuleur' portrays a character (portrayed by Stanley Ollivier) of mixed ethnicities navigating Western society. Hair, posture, and skin color shift, reflecting representations from art history and pop culture. This ever-changing character exposes how our gaze interprets different bodies. The film explores the consequences of these gazes on personal growth, oscillating between acceptance and otherness. The character struggles to find their place, rocking between conforming and rejecting societal norms, trying to find a pose that fits but ultimately breaking under its weight.

Brahim Tall (°1993 in Belgium) is a visual artist who explores body, identity, and politics. Raised in a Belgian/Dutch/Senegalese household, his work questions his societal role. Graduating with high honors from LUCA School of Arts, his debut film, 'Tukuleur,' earned a Wildcard from the Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF).
