Mario PFEIFER revisits the structures of an industrial building photographed in 1974 by Lewis Baltz, an american artist represented in “New Topographics”, a key exhibition in the history of photography. Peter DOWNSBROUGH films the Citroën garage at the Place d’Yser in Brussels, the legacy of an industrial architecture common to the inter world wars years. Hans OP DE BEECK shows us remembered spaces; not any specific sites, but the abstract, archetypal settings, as the common denominator of the many similar public places he has visited and experienced. Elise FLORENTY combines architecture, body and language, drawing inspiration from a poem by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Sasha PIRKER films “Pearl M. Mackey Apartment House” in Los Angeles, built in 1939 by the architect Rudolph M. Schindler, colleague of Frank Lloyd Wright. Using a travelling shot, Jaime DE LA JARA brings out the complexity of an otherwise banal facade. Peter GIZZI et Natalia ALMADA, respectively filmmaker and poet, film the portrait of men and environments in Tanger.
