Filmbau. Constructing Film. Swiss Architecture in the Moving Image


Full HD, bw/color, 44min, sound, D/e, 2015 

A cooperation with Evelyn Steiner and S AM Swiss Architecture Museum

The manifold relationships between film and architecture are most commonly discussed in reference to the built space that serves as a non-verbal narrative layer in feature films. This exhibition pursues a new path, away from the fictional film, focusing on moving images that are used in an analytical and documentary manner to reproduce Swiss architecture. The centrepiece of this show is a compilation film, which was developed in cooperation with the artist Florine Leoni using extracts from 101 films.
