TheAirstrip-Plakat 140THE AIRSTRIP

Photography and beyond – Part 21 / Decampment of Modernism – Part III
Heinz Emigholz, D 2013, 108 Minutes

I am imagining an air space into which a bomb has been dropped which has not yet reached it's ground zero. It is flying towards that point and cannot be stopped anymore. And then I ask myself what kind of a time that is existing between the dropping and the explosion of that bomb. It is neither the future because the enevitable destruction has yet not taken place, nor is it the past, because is definetely going to be destroyed in an instant. The flight time of the bomb describes an absolute nothingness, a zero hour, consisting of all possibilities that will not exist anymore in the next moment. A story that will cease before it has begun and that I sullenly have to tell. More...

Perret_Plakat_140

"This gloriously controlled study of the work of French architect Auguste Perret ... re-creates the tension between the ultrarational and the subtly exuberant in the architect's best work." (Best of 2012, ARTFORUM)

Premiere in Locarno 2012. Screenings at TIFF, VIFF, VIENNALE 2012, MoMA DF 2013:

PERRET IN FRANCE AND ALGERIA

Decampment of Modernism – Part II / Photography and beyond – Part 20
Heinz Emigholz, D 2012, 110 min

The film PERRET IN FRANCE AND ALGERIA presents thirty buildings and architectural ensembles of the French architects and construction engineers Auguste and Gustave Perret. Auguste Perret (1874-1954) has masterfully refined concrete construction in the implementation of his projects and instilled in them a classical expression.

PARABETON - PIER LUIGI NERVI AND ROMAN CONCRETE

Decampment of Modernism – Part I  / Photography and beyond – Part 19
Heinz Emigholz, D 2011, 100 min

PARABETON presents seventeen, in Italy and France still extant buildings by the Italian civil engineer Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979). The Romans invented liquid rock, also known as concrete. Nervi shaped concrete in such an ingenious way that he can be called the Architect‘s Architect of the 20th Century. The film shows his buildings in connection with ten examples of Ancient Roman architecture made of Opus caementitium. More...

Drawing (250) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"Handwriting that had been scrawled over a crumpled photograph of the main street of a small town in the Midwest of 1950s America, made unreadable by whiteout. If all thought could be attributed to a system, that which appears on its surface as language would merely be the tiny segment of a spherical surface and as irregular in its structures as the surface of our whole planet. The surfaces of being, both universally and drearily accessible to the technological image - here they are once again broken. The gravity of thoughts aiming at an invisible core, and the projections of the writing, originating from this core, that is declined on the surfaces of all objects. A weathered language, SECOND CLAUSES that occur without our assistance. We could have experienced all this together. Now it's too late. Two fingers of a hand operate the X-ray equipment of a cancer research centre. A drink from a cup of hemlock. The poisoned person suffocates while fully conscious." (From: Schwarze Blöcke, SchwarzHandPresse 2010).
