Full Description

Over the past thirty years, Swiss architect Peter Zumthor has expressed himself on numerous occasions and in a range of contexts about his work and his self-conception as an architect. Many of these statements have been recorded on film. Christoph Schaub, Swiss film director and internationally renowned author of documentaries on architects and architecture, has composed a biographic film collage from this rich legacy of interviews and conversations, lectures, and public talks. It spans Zumthor’s entire career from early days in the 1980s until today, including conversations with Schaub recorded for this compilation. This portrait also introduces us to Zumthor as a persona that has changed over three decades, yet still remained much the same man. Authentic, abiding, and passionately he responds to questions about his positions. His statements reveal sensitivity and consistency; they demonstrate a person following his inner compass and ideals. Christoph Schaub has conceived this biographic collage in collaboration with Atelier Peter Zumthor to coincide with the exhibition Dear to Me, curated by Zumthor, at Kunsthaus Bregenz in autumn 2017. DVD has English subtitles.
