Selected videos from the Argos collection, Brussels.

Inspired by Italo Calvino's novel Invisible Cities, the screening programme of Continuous Cities in Casino Luxembourg's BlackBox goes back and forth between fiction and reality. From Times Square in 1980 to a dreamy room in Brooklyn, the selected films reflect the way filmmakers portray the perpetual motion of American cities and their inhabitants in order to provide an account of their reality. The American metropolis becomes the metaphor of the constant evolution of our global village, an example for our daily struggles, social clichés and possible dreams.

Argos, Centre for Art and Media in Brussels is the leading national institute for art film and video. It functions as an art centre with a fully fledged collection programme. Argos is the most complete art centre devoted to film and video. Argos's expertise with regard to the conservation, restoration, production and presentation of art films and videos is widely recognized.
