Koolhaas Houselife – Film screening and talk with film directors Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine | SPECIAL (EN)

The »House in Bordeaux« (1998) is one of leading contemporary architect Rem Koolhaas’s most important works. In their film »Koolhaas Houselife« (2013), directors and artists Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine meticulously document the house's architecture and interiors – from a housekeeper’s perspective. One of the best-known architecture films of the last decades, their work offers a subversive and amusing homage revealing both the harmony and the clashes between architecture and reality. The directors will be present to introduce their work before screening; popcorn will be provided.

Private or Public? Interiors and the Media | TALK (EN)

Ranging from glossy magazines like »House Beautiful« or »Apartamento« to social media platforms publicizing the private, media play a central role in the emergence and spread of interior design trends. How do media impact our personal taste? Do they foster variety, or do they serve, mostly, to boost the turnover of the furniture industry? How much influence do »influencers« and bloggers really have on today’s interior design? These are the questions Nacho Alegre, photographer and co-founder of »Apartamento«, Antje Wewer, lifestyle journalist and editor for the »Salon« magazine, and Oliver Jahn, editor-in-chief of the journal »AD«, will discuss. The talk will be hosted by curator Jochen Eisenbrand.
