Weimar Villa (Unreconstructed)

Behr, Bernd (2010) Weimar Villa (Unreconstructed). [Art/Design Item] [Creative Arts and Design > Fine Art
Creative Arts and Design > Film & Video]
Creators:Behr, Bernd

Chronicling part of a recent New Town development in China designed by Albert Speer Jr., "Weimar Villa (Unreconstructed)" ponders the ruin value of white concrete housing shells set amidst mounds of dug-up earth that make up the new Bauhaus-themed gated community of Weimar Villa. Running in reverse, the video inhabits a perpetual moment in the cycle of construction and excavation, leaving the development to drift between an incomplete destination and an uncertain origin.
