Le Corbusier [|||||] Asger Jorn [Relief]

Le Corbusier [|||||] Asger Jorn [Relief]

Film by Heinz Emigholz

The film contrasts the "Villa Savoye", built by Le Corbusier in 1931, and Asger Jorn’s "Grand Relief", built in 1959.

Le Corbusier [IIIII] Asger Jorn [Relief] contrasts the Villa Savoye, built by Le Corbusier in 1931, and Asger Jorn’s Grand Relief, which the Danish painter and sculptor produced in 1959 for the Århus Statsgymnasium. The film makes connections between what does not belong together, at least not according to the ideological stipulations of their creators.

“The film came about because I was intrigued by the premise of comparing two buildings that at first seem to have nothing to do with one another. A dialogue between thoroughly stylized clarity and declared wildness, both with ideologically trimmings. It was only by working on the film that I learned to appreciate the two works that had once left me indifferent: the delight of their creators in the productively implemented statement.” Heinz Emigholz

Two Museums

Two Museums

Film by Heinz Emigholz

The film juxtaposes/compares two museums: The Museum of Art, Ein Harod, Israel, which Samuel Bickels (1909-1975) built there in 1948, and The Menil Collection in Houston, Texas, built by Renzo Piano (b. 1937) 1986 . The method of natural lighting in Bickels‘s construction was the direct model for Piano, who adopted for his construction at the request of its patroness Dominique de Menil.

The shooting of the film TWO MUSEUMS / TWO MUSEUMS took place in March 2012 in Houston, Texas, and in May 2012 in Ein Harod, Israel.

The Meadow of Things

Claus Wilhelm Klinker, Eckhard Rhode, Klaus DufkeDie Wiese der Sachen

„To whom in love of Nature holds communion with her visible forms, she speaks of a various language.“ William Cullen Bryant

Clonetown, 1974 bis 1979. Die Chronik eines Abschieds. Charon, ein abgesprungener Terrorist (Eckhard Rhode), sitzt am Ufer zur Vergessenheit und kommentiert die bevorstehende Vermoderung eines entführten Autohändlers. Er hätte auch gern einen Körper gehabt. In seiner Erinnerung ziehen seine zweiten und dritten Ichs herauf, der megalomanische Künstler und der perverse Teppichhändler (John Erdman).

Abb.: Claus Wilhelm Klinker, Eckhard Rhode, Klaus Dufke
