The 6th chapter of the Moving Image Department concentrates on two parallel and complementary themes - the (inner) architecture of time and the architecture as a vehicle of temporality. The works gathered in “Inner Lives (Of Time)” express the psychology of both time and architecture, and their influence upon (mainly female) protagonists’ acts and the action’s flow. From the trance films of the American avant-garde filmmaker and film theorist of the 1940’s and 1950’s, Maya Deren through a cinematographic masterpiece, House With Pool (2004) by American filmmakers Hubbard\Birchler down to the structural poetry of Marketa Othova’s photography and the poetic structure of Josef Dabernig’s already iconic Grids, the exhibition loops the stories in a search for a cinematic truth and magic.
