Exploring City Scape Berlin, Chicago, Hannover
Short films by Klaus W. Eisenlohr

The Sky Above Alexanderplatz (1996, 16mm, colour, sound from CD) 16min

Klaus W. Eisenlohr's works are concerned with the
spatial practices of filmmaking, and with the
body in architectural and urban environments. The
Sky Above Alexanderplatz and Local Time + 2 1/2
are explorations of the urban environment
strongly related to the artist's photographic
work on architecture. These earlier films
anticipate themes in his more recent video
project, realized during a two-year residency in
Chicago. Slow Space - The Interviews investigates
the intellectual debate over the value of public
space in the postmodern city, and features
conversations with artists living in Chicago. In
his latest work the artist explores the question
of change in urban space and the social
constitution of place in metropolitan areas in
Germany. In Stadtrandzone Mitte in Langenhagen
(Center of Urban Periphery at Langenhagen) he
worked together with youths on how they use
public space and interact in public.
