Learning from... Rome

Talk, in English, Paul Desmarais Theatre, 5 March 2009

Filmmaker and photographer Armin Linke reveals the societal changes, cultural complexities, and beauty of contemporary Rome through two short films and architectural photographs from his archives.

The first film focuses on a moment of natural choreography as some 100,000 starlings fly against the backdrop of the city of Rome. Linke presents a selection of photographs, including a series of images on the architecture of Italian political institutions in Rome. He concludes his presentation with a 3D film about abandoned nuclear power plants around Rome and throughout Italy.

Armin Linke’s body of work addresses the issues of globalization and social change, basing his practice in both Milan and Berlin. He teaches media arts at the Karlsruhe University of Art & Design as well as at the Universita IUAV in Venice.

This lecture is part of the Learning from… series.
