Sven Augustijnen

'L'école des pickpockets' was filmed in Brussels. Augustijnen walks the line between a documentary and a staged film script. For 'L'école des pickpockets' Augustijnen points the camera at an (invisible) metropolitan plague: pickpockets. Two master pickpockets give instruction in the tricks of the trade. Augustijnen places the viewer in an awkward predicament: the works create a form of complicity that is problematic in relation to what is revealed or shown.
