1. ARCHITECTING AFTER POLITICS (2018—2020)
von Brandlhuber+ Olaf Grawert and Christopher Roth; Michaela Friedberg, Angelika Hinterbrandner, Annalena Morra, Anna Yeboah
Who designs laws? What shapes architecture? Who owns the ground? What shapes our build environment? These current questions about the political agency of architects are the main focus of Architecting after Politics. The film continues what the two previous parts Legislating Architecture (30‘, 2016) and The Property Drama (32‘, 2017) began and leads us to a crucial question of our time: Who architects?
The protagonists from the fields of architecture, art, politics, economy and technology provide controversial answers to this question. With a variety of case studies and interviews, the film illustrates and explains the complexity of decision-making structures within architecture and the building industry. Spanning the arc from the politicization of architects, over the idea of democracy vs. freedom, to a new understanding of responsibility and alternative architectural models.

3. SUR—FAKE (2015)
von Antoine Geiger
SUR—FAKE is a series of images by french architect and visual artist Antoine Geiger in which he visualizes the obsessive and immersive relationship with smartphones through a series of digital manipulations. It is placing the screen as an object of „mass subculture,“ alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world. Faces are sucked from their origin by an unseen force embedded within each device, stretching the person’s features into an unrecognizable blur.
4. BRUNCH À LA LOFT (1987—1988)
