STEFAAN DECOSTERE: “Creating impact with video. It must be YouTube. Hit that score! Come & see the impact of my doing with video. Nothing new that is. Actually, it is exactly what Elem Klimov did (superbly), as so many filmmakers before and after him, with his warfilm ‘Come and see’ (1985). As a consequence, the main character in his film was left with only one last option: to shoot at the filmpictures themselves. And so he did. Impact creates impact, if nothing else. Things to be done and to finish with. How then does YouTube make us look for ways out of this logic of war, technology and images? At what point do we start to understand? And make?”
