The Empty Chair that Maarten Baas made for Amnesty International was prominently displayed at the opening of the Movies That Matter Film Festival in The Hague yesterday. That’s not so strange as it seems. Originally the name of this Film Festival was Amnesty International Film Festival and Amnesty International is still the festival’s main sponsor.
Finally the word is out: Production of the More or Less Chair by Maarten Baas has been started by NGispeN. The special effect is that there is almost no chair the same in the series as there are a number of different backs and seatings you will notice if you look at the 4 photos (by Chris van Koeverden) closely.
