Schindler's Houses

Toole House (1946) in Palm Desert

Schindler's Houses

"Schindler’s Houses" shows forty buildings by the Austro-American architect Rudolph Schindler from the years 1931 to 1952. Schindler’s pioneering work in Southern California is the cornerstone of a branch of modern architecture. All the material for the film was shot in May 2006. The film is thus also an up-to-date portrait of urban life in Los Angeles that has never been documented in this form before.

Architecture projects space into this world. Cinemaphotography translates that space into pictures projected in time. Cinema then is used in a completely new way: as a space to meditate on buildungs.“ Heinz Emigholz

Schindlers Häuser

Loos ornamental

Haus am Michaelerplatz, WienLOOS ORNAMENTAL

The film shows 27 still-existing buildings and interiors by Austrian architect Adolf Loos (1870–1933) in order of their construction. Adolf Loos was one of the pioneers of European Modernist architecture. His vehement turn against ornamentation on buildings triggered a controversy in architectural theory. The development of his “spatial plan” launched a new way of thinking about spaces to be built.

 

His houses, furniture for shops and apartments, facades, and monuments were built between 1899 and 1931. They were filmed in 2006 in Vienna, Lower Austria, Prague, Brno, Pilsen, Nachod, and Paris in their present surroundings.

Die Basis des Make-Up

John Erdman und Claus-Wilhelm KlinkerDie Basis des Make-Up

Belgien, am 9. Oktober 1979. Ein Koch (Bernd Broaderup) bohrt ein Loch in die Tür zur camera obscura seines Chefs (John Erdman), einem persisch-amerikanischen Teppichhändler. Dieser haust mit zwei befreundeten Frauen (Carola Regnier, Silke Grossmann) und einem selbstverliebten Trinker (Kiev Stingl) neben den hellen Räumen seiner Bediensteten (Eckhard Rhode, Claus-Wilhelm Klinker) in einer düsteren Teppichhöhle. Auf dem schmalen Grat zwischen beruflichem und privatem Dasein, Abhängigkeiten und Machtausübung, versucht jeder, seinen Deal mit der Liebe über Wasser zu halten.

Hotel

Hotel Hotel

Der Titel des Films ist eine Hommage an die Titel der Shows von Jack Smith, ›Lucky Landlordism of Rented Paradise‹ zum Beispiel, besonders aber an ›Horrror of the Rented World‹, sein Auftritt im Collective for Living Cinema 1975. Weise Einsicht dieser Zeit war der verbockt bis zärtlich an jeden Ort der Welt geheftete Spruch: "I am a tourist here myself."

Tide

Tide - EbbeTide

Der erste Teil von TIDE zeigt in 15 Minuten die Progression von Ebbe bis Flut. Der zweite, gleich lange Teil verfolgt die Verändereungen von Flut bis Ebbe. Die besondere Arbeit des Künstlers bestand in der Festlegung eines komplexen Aufnahme-Plans (Score), der genau beschrieben werden muss. Das Endergebnis ist eine mehrschichtige, fließende Filmhandlung, die einen linearen Zeitablauf nicht zeitlich linear darstellt, sondern aufeinanderfolgende Momente einander gleichzeitig gegenüberstellt.
