Article excerpt

The annual Assembly of FIAF, which was held in Mo i Rana (Norway) on May 31st, 1991, has witnessed the election of its Executive Committee, which will lead the Federation towards the much expected Centennial of Film, thus taking over a crucial responsibility in the development and diffusion of the principles and practice of film preservation. Each member has agreed to send a brief resume of his/her activity in the field.

Hoos Blotkamp

was born in Utrecht (Holland) in 1943. She studied art-history, specializing in "modern times" (supposedly the era from 1850 onwards) and her subjects were: Duchamp and Bergson, electronic music, chance in the arts. She was seven years curator at the Central Museum in Utrecht making exhibitions, educational projects and publications on art, architecture and even one on film. She was then seven years head of the department of Visual Arts, Architecture and Design at the Ministry of Culture, getting thoroughly acquainted with bureaucracy, politics and cultural policy (whatever that may be). Computer-freak and having (to her own surprise) an image of "competent manager", she is nevertheless deeply attached to the fields of culture and their well-being; she has now been several years in love with the newly detected area of early cinema.
