Pavelló Screen Cinema cycle


The Pavelló Screen Cinema cycle brings us closer to the relationship between the built space and the inhabitants that reside there. Architecture, and with it the cities, influences the way we live in the same way that rules of coexistence and laws do. The Mies van der Rohe Foundation offers a tour of different cities and their representation in the cinema with projections directly on the travertine marble of the Pavilion.

In this edition the cycle dedicated to the Bauhaus in its centenary with the title of Berlin: Architecture, cinema and Bauhaus. The third session this summer includes two documentaries, both with Berlin as the stage.


Gebaute Bewegung (built movement) by Knut Klaßen, Carsten Krohn and Karsten Schubert (2015).
28 minutes, German VO subtitled in English.

Film about the late architect Johannes Uhl who designed "Neues Kreuzberger Zentrum", a large-scale housing block of the 60s and 70s that was the first step towards excavating large parts of Kreuzberg to make room for a large freeway and blocks of high-rise housing. A very sensitive short film that deals with the mentality of urban planning in the 60s and 70s and most importantly, how it affects current urban life.

Die Fahrt durchs Haus (A Walk Through the House) by Knut Klaßen and Carsten Krohn (2008)
58 minutes, German VO subtitled in English

Sarah grew up in Märkisches Viertel and begins to investigate the work of the architect who designed this urbanization in the west of Berlin, and decides to visit its buildings. The architect Georg Heinrichs lives in a villa that reflects the essence of its inhabitant. It is a universe of art, design, proportion and morality. He summarizes his life and concludes that it can not be overcome in irrationality and absurdity.

The event is free but you have to reserve a place.
