In German with English subtitles
Since 1984, German filmmaker Heinz Emigholz has been at work on an ever-expanding project entitled Photography and Beyond, a series of formally rigorous studies of human creativity, documenting works of writing, design, and, in particular, architecture. Subtitling many of the films Architecture as Autobiography, Emigholz has devoted himself to cataloguing the work of architects including Louis Sullivan, Adolf Loos, Robert Maillart, Bruce Goff, and Rudolph Schindler.
This September, the Goethe-Institut New York will be mounting an exhibition (co-organized by the Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art, Berlin) entitled The Formative Years, featuring seven early Emigholz films in a site-specific video installation, and taking place at the Goethe-Institut Wyoming Building (5 East 3rd Street).
In conjunction with this exhibition, Anthology presents seven programs surveying Emigholz’s later work, including most of the films in the Photography and Beyond series, along with the feature filmThe Holy Bunch. Emigholz himself will be here in person to discuss his work.
