Aspen Art Museum’s moving image initiative places film and video, arguably the most dominant art form of the last fifty years, in direct dialogue with contemporary art practices on view.

About the film

Here is Always Somewhere Else


Directed by Rene Daalder

103 min

In 1975, thirty-three-year-old Dutch-Californian artist Bas Jan Ader set out to cross the Atlantic in a thirteen-foot cruiser for a performance piece titled In Search of the Miraculous. He never returned. In a film that’s part unsolved mystery, part artist survey, director Rene Daalder chronicles his friend’s disappearance while also presenting Ader’s conceptual work.

Films are presented free of charge on Level 3 at 7 p.m. Starting at 6 p.m., drinks and free popcorn are available at the museum café, SO.

Support for Movies at the Museum is provided by The Etkin Family Digital Media and Moving Image Fund. AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund.
