EVENT: screening of Jürgen Böttcher’s The Wall (Die Mauer) (1991). London, 12 June 2019
As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture, the Open City Documentary Festival, part of UCL Anthropology, will screen Jürgen Böttcher’s The Wall (Die Mauer) on 35mm, with a panel discussion after on cinematic and artistic representations of the Berlin Wall in Böttcher’s work and beyond. The film, made in 1991 by the painter and filmmaker, traces the Wall in the days leading up to and during its destruction, and serves as both a historical record and a poetic contemplation on the wall and its various depictions in film and media.
The event will take place on 12 June 2019, at Regent Street Cinema in London.
