THE MIES VAN DER ROHES. A FEMALE FAMILY SAGA

Director Sabine Gisiger will attend the filmscreening.

An epic family saga told by the women surrounding the famous architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. His wife Ada, his daughters Georgia, Manna and Traudel and his lover Lilly Reich seize the opportunities of the new era, but also experience the restrictions of old patterns. The golden 20s, the increasingly barbaric 30s and finally war.

Based on private and unpublished archive footage, images and documents, Sabine Gisiger retells the story of the iconic architect Mies van der Rohe – from a female perspective. The celebrated German actress Katharina Thalbach brings Georgia van der Rohe to life – in fictional interviews based on authentic statements.

Exhibition:
Experimental Estate Budapest –
Model houses Napraforgó-Street
09.12.2023-
03.03.2024

Exhibition

In 1931, an experimental housing estate with detached houses was built in Budapest. Today it is known as the Napraforgó Street estate. It was initiated by a group of Hungarian architects and realised by the construction company Fejér és Dános. Their aim was to find new solutions to the housing problem.

Among the architects involved were well-known names in Hungary such as Farkas Molnár, Virgil Bierbauer and József Fischer. They brought international modernism to Hungary. The 22 residential buildings on the estate display a broad spectrum of styles. In addition to influences from Art Deco and Expressionism, the majority of the architects orientated themselves towards Neues Bauen and the formal language of the Bauhaus.

The “small housing model estate” was already inhabited when it was officially opened in November 1931. However, the houses were presented to the public in detail in the progressive Hungarian architecture magazine “Tér és Forma”.

The exhibition in the Weissenhofwerkstatt in the Mies van der Rohe House shows the Hungarian Napraforgó Street estate in the context of the Weissenhof estate. Exhibiting historical plans, photos and models. It was created in collaboration with the Hungarian Museum of Architecture in Budapest.

29.11.2023
Lecture: “Bauhaus” Tel Aviv
History and Significance of a Construction of Meaning
29.11.2023

Lecture

The perception of Tel Aviv’s White City is closely linked to the term “Bauhaus”. It is often used as a synonym for the history of Tel Aviv’s development. Moreover, it is supposed to lend significance to the architectural heritage. In doing so, it obscures the view of the complexity of Tel Aviv’s (architectural) history. And in the German perspective, it also serves as a means of making amends, according to Alexandra Klei.

The lecture will trace these constructions, both in their development and in their functions. Klei will also relate it to the concrete history of the city and its architectural-modern heritage.

 

Dr. Alexandra Klei is an architectural historian and research associate at the Institute for the History of German Jews in Hamburg. Here she does research about “Jewish Building” between 1945 and 1990 in the Federal Republic of Germany and in the the GDR. In addition, she has dedicated herself for several years to an examination of Tel Aviv’s architectural-modern heritage and its conveyance. Her publication “Wie das Bauhaus nach Tel Aviv kam: Re-Konstruktion einer Idee in Text, Bild und Architektur” was published in 2019 (2nd ed. 2021) by neofelis Verlag in Berlin.

Start: 7 pm
Venue: Vortragsaal Neubau II., Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart (Am Weissenhof 1, 70191 Stuttgart)
