Within the framework of the BARQ International Architecture Film Festival of Barcelona, the documentary “[On set with] Lilly Reich”, which was granted with the 2nd Lilly Reich Grant for Equality in Architecture, will be premiered.
A short film that combines original documentary sources with newly created visual material, and which reflects the limited recognition in the professional field of Lilly Reich, like that of so many other women, contrasting what she contributed (what was done) with what was said about her (what was narrated).
A young professor decides to investigate the work of the designer and architect Lilly Reich through a journey through the main places where Reich had a significant presence – from her formative phase and her early works to her period of collaboration with Mies van der Rohe and the solitude of her last years – to contrast it with the recognition she received in the media. Although much of his legacy has been silenced by critics, recent studies reveal Reich’s important contributions to architecture and design.
The documentary will be preceded by a brief presentation by Celia Marín and after the screening, a debate with the audience will be opened in the presence of the authors.
