Free screening on the Sammlung Goetz website on Saturday, 10.04.2021, and Sunday, 11.04.2021.
A romantically sublime river landscape in Canada awaits the audience in our Screening Special on the second weekend in April. On view will be Christoph Brech’s film Break, in which a cargo ship trails behind an icebreaker as it battles its way through the water’s frozen surface. This impressive natural spectacle is accompanied by a musical sequence from Richard Wagner’s opera Das Rheingold, arranged by the artist. The film recalls the atmospheric paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, as well as Mark Rothko’s abstract landscapes.
With the Screening Special series, the Sammlung Goetz will present selected films on its website every second Saturday of the month, thus providing a view into its diverse media art collection.
