 Reasonable Doubt_Mieke Bal 18 maart 2017 Photo by Przemo Wojciechowski

Reasonable Doubt, the latest film project by cultural theorist and critic Mieke Bal, is an experiment to audio-visualise ‘thought’. Mixing docu-drama with theoretical fiction, the project stages scenes from the lives of philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650) and the Swedish Queen Kristina (1626-1689).
After an intellectual relationship by correspondence, they met in Stockholm, where Descartes died six weeks after arriving, due to the cold. The video installation is not a biography but a series of scenes that constitute a double portrait.

Curator: Nina Folkersma
