About the event
While the exhibition “Heimat. A Sense of Belonging” is temporarily closed for the COVID-19 pandemic, Armani/Silos pays tribute to the genius of Peter Lindbergh thanks to a selection of six movies in their original language curated by the Peter Lindbergh Foundation and available online for free.
The movie selection expands the narrative path of the exhibition through Lindbergh’s own film productions, inspirational cinema and authors who over time have woven bonds of collaboration and friendship with the photographer. The fil rouge is the centrality of the female figure, presented through an uncontaminated and authentic gaze.
Into more details
The exhibition starts with Paris, Texas and The Sky Over Berlin, two films by his friend Wim Wenders, who admired Peter Lindbergh not only for his ability to portray women but also for the “child that always shone through his eyes”. Fascinating technical experimentation can be found in Chris Marker’s “photo-romance” La Jetée, in which the succession of photographs creates the illusion of movement, as in the origins of cinema. This is followed by Ossessione, Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece that opened the door to neo-realism. The festival concludes with two women: Jeanne Moreau and Pina Bausch, in two productions directed by Peter Lindbergh.
