Great author Alexander (Bruno Ganz) is preparing to leave the house by the sea which has always been his home. Upon finding a letter from his wife Anna (Isabelle Renauld), in which she speaks of a summer day some 30 years ago, Alexander embarks on a strange journey in which past and present are intertwined. Whilst chasing after the chimerical words of his novels he has passed by moments of joy in his life. Moments he wants to retrieve for one day... for eternity. Featuring a moving performance from Bruno Ganz, Eternity and a Day is a beautifully crafted, luminous film from Theo Angelopoulos which was unanimously voted the winner of the 1998 Cannes Palme d'Or by a jury chaired by Martin Scorsese.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
