Event Details

While destruction as a theme can be traced throughout art history, starting in the early Atomic Age it evolved into a pervasive cultural element. The Hirshhorn Museum reflects this in its current exhibition, Damage Control: Art and Destruction since 1950 (on display through May 26, 2014).

In cooperation with the Oberhausen, Germany International Short Film Festival and the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Goethe-Institut presents two film programs in response to Damage Control.

Scenes of overwhelming media and poses of collective shock, but also the incidental, non-malicious destruction, the promised and yet unrealized destruction. Disruption of language and image. Smashed televisions and ruined lungs. Nothing is ruined all by itself.

All films are either in English or have English subtitles. Total time: 96 min.
