 Johan Grimonprez
«Inflight Lounge: With the video library «Maybe the sky is green and we're just colourblind»»

As a supplement to his film «dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y,» Grimonprez initially launched an «Inflight Magazine» only to develop later on various «Inflight Lounges» for museums and exhibitions including video libraries. Whereas his video lounge for Documenta X was playing on the low-tech and improvised character of watching movies at home, the «Inflight Lounge» displays a slick, commercial outlook—in stark contrast to the possible content of the actual video libraries.
