As part of its inaugural exhibition, Housewarming, Maison Touchard presents the second iteration of a series of two screenings.
Housewarming is a group exhibition that explores the dichotomy between the utopian principles of Modernist architecture – the moralistic ideals of purity, transparency, light, and function – and its failed and rebellious legacies; namely within the prescriptive urban renewal and public housing schemes that began to appear en masse in the second half of the 20th century.
Eric Rohmer, L’ami de mon amie (1987) – 1h42 mins
A series of entangled love stories set in the satellite city of Cergy-Pontoise, partly designed by Argentine architect Ricardo Bofill.
“In a Rohmer movie, the physical world, including architecture, describes the life of the mind.” Vincent Canby
