A New Environment: Heinrich Klotz on Architecture and New Media

Art and architecture historian Heinrich Klotz made a mark on the postmodern architecture of the 1970s. As an outspoken defender of postmodernism and the role of virtual and digital media, he was ahead of his time. The founder of the German Architecture Museum in Frankfurt was fascinated by the country’s post-war reconstruction. He argued for a sensual architecture instead of soulless tower blocks. Entitled A New Environment: Heinrich Klotz on Architecture and New Media, this remarkable portrait by filmmaker Christian Haardt shows the art historian as he saw himself. A passionate user of video cameras, Klotz recorded much of his own life. The film offers a unique glimpse into the world of this influential thinker.
