The video works of Emma van der Put originate from looking closely at the (urban) public space. In her position as an observer, she tries to maintain a balance between empathy and detachment. Even though she is physically part of the crowd, the telescopic lens of her camera is creating a distance, a private space within the public space. Since 2018 Emma van der Put started working on a long-term project, consisting of a series of videos and a publication in collaboration with art critic and researcher Steyn Bergs, in which she is reflecting on the current situation of the historical World Exhibition site of Brussels. In the coming years this area will be renovated and modernized. Emma van der Put is looking into the traces of historical and contemporary ideas about urban development, (technological) progress and globalization that can be found within this location.

Together with Chloé Malcotti, Emma van der Put is organising ‘Level Five Blue Screen’, a monthly screening program focussing on visual artists working with video and film.
