The Netherlands Media Art Institute proudly presents the first solo exhibition by Omer Fast in The Netherlands. The show is comprised of three video installations, which have not been exhibited in the Netherlands before: Nostalgia, The Casting and De Grote Boodschap.

Omer Fast writes his own scripts and directs and edits his own films. Working with film, video and television material, he looks at how individual and collective histories interact with each other in narrative.

The interview acts as an important form in his work, both in terms of construction and as a point of origin. Fast repeatedly works with eye-witnesses and their testimonies. Through a process of re-enactment, they interpret their memories and experiences anew. Fast does not respond directly to reality, but works with representations of occurrences and demonstrates that video and film cannot be simply considered as open factual media, but that they can generate space for reflection.

Omer Fast's recent solo exhibitions include the Whitney Museum of American Art, the South London Gallery, Kunstverein Hannover and the Berkeley Art Museum.
