Item description for Hans Richter: New Living by Arthur Ruegg & Andres Janser...
"New Living" (Das Neue Wohnen) was the title of an exeptional architectural propaganda film created in 1930 by German avant-garde artist and filmmaker Hans Richter. It showcased exemplary modernist buildings and furniture--some of which were on view shortly after in the prestigious exhibition "The International Style"--and contrasted them with the impractical, unhygienic living spaces that were the norm. Visually diverse and full of experimental montage techniques, "New Living" pioneered a radical method of portraying architecture on celluloid. Edited by Andres Janser & Arthur Ruegg.
