Event description

Description

Directed by Ina Weisse (2017)

Beautifully filmed in black-and-white, this documentary chronicles the history and renovation of the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the last building designed by Mies van der Rohe. With fascinating insights into the original building process and intimate interviews with van der Rohe himself, the film also skillfully connects Berlin’s post-WWII reconstruction project with the museum’s more recent renovations. A fitting tribute to Mies’ work and a cinematic exercise in simplicity that would make him proud.
