The film programme of this year’s Werkleitz Festival Model and Ruin curated by Florian Wüst, which took place in Dessau in May / June of this year, was dedicated to the city as a venue and witness to social upheaval. As part of an addition to the festival in Halle, Werkleitz will present two short films of the programme - koordianten by Juliane Henrich and Bigger Than Life by Adnan Softić - combined with a lecture by author and urban researcher Orhan Esen on spatial politics and historicizing architecture in Berlin, Skopje and Istanbul.
