Architecting after Politics, DE 2018, 90:00 min, original version with German subtitles, D: brandlhuber+ & Christopher Roth
Legislating Architecture describes a model of thought and action that engages with the rules and laws of architecture. Architecture is understood as the built environment and as a social arena.
Architecting after Politics is the third film in a series that has been produced since 2016 in a cooperation between Brandlhuber+ and director Christopher Roth. The latest film continues where the films Legislating Architecture and The Property Drama left off, and poses a crucial question for our time: Who architects? (Who builds and shapes the world?)
