Mike Redman: From Project to Object

00:04:30 486 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
Construction workers and music - you all have an idea about the possible implications of this combination. Surprisingly, Mike Redman lets the men who, over seventy years ago, built Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, make their own music.

This video is a short edit of a film of 53 minutes about the construction of the museum. The originally silent film was made in the between 1932 and 1935 by G.L. Theijssen. Now Mike Redman, director and composer from Rotterdam, tells the story in less than 5 minutes. Moreover, Redman gives us the music that was locked into the silent images for all these years.
