phone box postcards - The short film I made during the lockdown can be seen at the Sanquhar Arts Festival


„Julia Zinnbauer is our artist in residence at MERZ for the Summer. A string of coincidences from her childhood to the present day have engaged Julia’s passion for Scotland. When she was young her family acquired a Gilbert Scott telephone box that was cast in Scotland and had it installed in their back garden in Germany. Julia Zinnbauer‘s work engages architecture and calligraphy with fashion and story telling (here based around her childhood diaries). In anticipation of her Summer Residency Julia has woven an eloquent plea for retaining Sanquhar’s Post Office, poetically illustrating the necessity of communication from a position of isolation."
David Rushton, MERZ Gallery
Sanquhar, about my short film "phone box postcards"

The Sanquhar Arts Festival
This weekend, from the Sanquhar Arts Festival is taking place. Originally it was planned to inaugurate the Sanquhar Cultural Quarter, in the presence of Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, which unfortunately due to the current situation is not possible. But the Festival itself takes place - on the internet - and I’m happy to be part of. David Rushton compiled sixteen contributions from artists and performers from the Festival and beyond. Their photographs and films appear at regular intervals over the 22nd - 25th May weekend here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/sanquharartsfestival/

FLYOVER: Re - education durch Architektur. Bazon Brocks Vortrag zur Finissage meiner Ausstellung im Stadtmuseum Düsseldorf


Bazon Brock: Re - education durch Architektur.

Wie die Amerikaner den Deutschen das Senkrechtstehen beibringen wollten - Stahlskelettbau und Charaktermasken 


Mit einem Gastbeitrag von Dr. Kathleen Hooper: Das Amerikahaus
 


























"Wenn wir mit dem Kleinsten und Alltäglichsten, dem Gemeisnten und Selbstverständlichsten die Anmutung des großen Problematischen, Dunklen, nicht Verstehbaren geben, dann romantisieren wir die Welt (...). Und diese Form der Anverwandlung ist das, was Julia hier demonstriert."

Zur Finissage meiner Ausstellung "FLYOVER - Los Angeles und die Architektur der Nachkriegsmoderne in Düsseldorf" hielt Bazon Brock am 15. September 2019 einen aufregenden, unfassbar vielschichtigen Vortrag, den ich in einem Video festgehalten habe:
