A trained artist born in Weimar, Ella Bergmann-Michel is one of those talented women that was systematically ignored in the history of art and the history of cinema. She produced art across a wide range of styles and techniques, but mostly experimenting with collage in painting, sculpture, photography, and film. Bergmann-Michel bravely walks the streets of Weimar with a camera in her hand, recording the gloomy atmosphere of looming fascism between 1931 and 1933. The documentaries and the footage that she filmed around this time not only keeps a register of the daily life under the pressures of the rising Nazi sentiments, but also claims filmmaking as a political act. While men with a movie camera always wrote the history and kept a register of human memory, women with a movie camera are noticeably absent, ignored, erased, forgotten. With Bergmann-Michel’s work getting increasingly more attention, come and enjoy the intimate poeticism and shocking bravery of the footage she recorded on the streets.

Tickets are available at Biletix and on the day of the event, at the Akbank Sanat ticket counter.  

Talks and masterclasses are free.
