Away From All Suns (Isa Willinger, Germany 2013) is an intriguing portrait of three Muscovites who ally themselves with the fate of the buildings and the underlying ideas of Russian constructivism. Elena battles to prevent her apartment block and the neighbouring printworks from having to make way for new development, Donatas respects tradition in his artist colony in his own manner, and architect Vsevolod wants to preserve a building. Russian constructivism still appeals to the imagination as a never-completed Utopia. But today these world monuments are in a pitiful state. Used casually, they’ve become the ruins of the future.
In connection with the screening of Away From All Suns, from 18:30 to 19:30 archivist Alfred Marks will lead a guided tour on Russian Constructivism in the State Archive for Dutch Architecture and Urban Planning. Registration in the foyer of Het Nieuwe Instituut.
Before the Thursday Night you can grab a bite to eat with the speakers and staff of Het Nieuwe Instituut. At 18:00 Het Nieuwe Café will serve soup with bread or a quiche with salad. Dinner vouchers are available for € 7.50 up to a day before the particular Thursday Night event via the Tickets link.
