Mies on Scene
Documentary / Talk
Filmoteca de La Rioja
April 30th at 20:15
A documentary by Fundació Mies van der Rohe & Nihao Films that will be shown at the Filmoteca of La Rioja with the participation of Anna & Eugeni Bach, authors of the intervention Mies Missing Materiality in the Pavilion.
The Barcelona Pavilion, the masterpiece with which Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich presented their revolutionary ideas in 1929, changed the history of architecture forever. It only existed for eight months, but, paradoxically, its image was always alive in the minds of generations of architects around the world, becoming one of its major influences.
The pavilion is still surrounded by myths and mysteries that this documentary deals with. It frames the building in a portrait in two acts of Barcelona that made possible its construction in 1929 and its reconstruction in 1986. We immerse ourselves in a reflection on the transformative capacity of art, the emotional perception of space and the concept of masterpiece.
