Diagonale 2020

Director: Claudia Larcher

The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Translating the architectural concept of “fluid space” into fleeting moving images, Claudia Larcher uses fragments of photos of Mies van der Rohe’s structures to create a space that is continually re-creating itself and dissolving. An artistic approach to the paradigms of modern architecture, which causes a collapse of the guiding concepts of transparency and reduction of form.
