Arne Hendriks worries about people growing taller and taller: from an ecological perspective it would be much smarter if we got smaller and smaller. This evening the artist will be presenting a lecture, film fragments and a performance.

Followed by the screening of the Sci-Fi horror classic The Incredible Shrinking Man (Jack Arnold, USA, 1957, 81 min) with live sound re-pitch.

Of all of the cautionary science fiction films produced in the fifties, The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) is just as thought-provoking for audiences today as it was during the Eisenhower era. Whether you see it as anti-nuclear paranoia or a male anxiety nightmare or a philosophical tale about man’s place in the universe, the film conveys a sense of the fantastic that resonates deeply with most viewers who see it.
