Inhalt

Goff in the Desert

"Goff in the Desert", part seven in the "Photography and beyond" series, presents 62 buildings from the American architect Bruce Goff (1904-1982) – from the smallest cottage to an impressive museum pavilion – and is the only cinematographic collection of almost all of his buildings still in existence.


Bruce Goff is considered to be one of the “greatest unknowns” of American architecture. As a determined experimenter, his works and designs were often in significant contrast to the "International Style" movement, and the controversies surrounding his works have since become legendary. Almost all of his buildings created a shock and introduced new, previously unknown possibilities to the world of architecture. Heinz Emigholz’s film, shot in the spring of 2002 on a 9,200-mile trip across the USA, is a congenial approach to Goff’s works.

"Photography and beyond" is a series of films about art and design – "projections" that become visible as writings, drawings, photography, architecture and sculpture. Goff in the Desert is the third film of a subgroup entitled "Architecture as Autobiography", the first two of which dealt with buildings of Louis H. Sullivan and Robert Maillart. The first six films in the "Photography and beyond"-series were presented in the KINO Magzines 2/2001 and 4/2001.
