Jesper Just: It Will All End In Tears, 2006

35mm (20 mins)

The works of Jesper Just (born 1974) have often been interpreted as homo-erotic, but the word ‘queer’ with all its connotations would perhaps be more appropriate. The films could perhaps be construed as feminist, at least, to the extent that feminism is about the recognition of sexuality as a social construction, and not merely concerned with the problem of sexual equality.

In Jesper Justs new film "It Will All End In Tears" Just, as often seen before in his works, present the problem of the relationship between generations ­ or ­ more precisely, the relationship between father and son, both in literal and metaphorical terms.

Jesper Just is not simply concerned with a representational-critical reiteration of cinematic clichés; he also manages to pose questions of a more existential character, questions that touch on men¹s way of being and being together.


Jesper Just will be in conversation with Sophie von Olfers, curator at Witte de With.

Sophie von Olfers is assistant curator at Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art, in Rotterdam. Together with the new director Nicolaus Schafhausen, she curated "Don Quijote", the first group exhibition in the new programme. Jesper Just's trilogy "A Fine Romance" was a central work in this exhibition, uniting the unbearable failure of relationships, deep personal struggles and manipulative dynamics - notions that were the show's main focus.

Jesper Just will be at Witte de With with an extensive solo exhibition in March 2007, realised in collaboration with the Ursula Blickle Foundation and the Kunsthalle Vienna.



This event coincides with the Frieze Art Fair, 12-15 October
