We broadcast a recording of the interview with the renown filmmakers Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine. The conversation took place in the frame of the course Emerging Fields in Architecture, TU Vienna (WS 2020/21).
„Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine are two of the foremost architectural artists working today. Their films focus on the relationship of people and design, emphasising the presence of everyday life within some of the most iconic architectural projects of recent decades.“ Barbican Centre, London.
Presented by The New York Times as the „cult figures in the European architecture world“, Bêka & Lemoine’s work has been widely acclaimed as „a new form of criticism“ (Mark) which „has deeply changed the way of looking at architecture“ (Domus).
Their films have been widely presented in major biennials and international cultural events such as The Venice Architecture Biennale (2008, 2010, 2014), The Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016, the Seoul Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism 2017, Performa 17 in New-York, among many others. Their films are also frequently exhibited in some of the most prestigious museums and international cultural institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New-York, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, the Barbican Centre in London, the CAPC museum of contemporary art in Bordeaux, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) in Seoul, or the Canadian Center for Architecture in Montréal, Canada.
Lukas Felder and Franziska Hummel conducted the interview and produced this broadcast as part of the course Emerging Fields in Architecture at the Vienna University of Technology.
