Richard Serra. Sehen ist Denken

Maria Anna Tappeiner, Germany, 2006, 44’, E/German spoken

Produced in 2005 in conjunction with the installation of the monumental work The Matter of Time at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the film manages to capture an overview of Serra’s complete oeuvre. The installation Snake Eyes and Boxcar presented in the film can be compared to the large-scale work Open Field Vertical/Horizontal Elevations (for Breughel and Martin Schwander) (1979–1980), which is permanently installed in Riehen’s Wenkenpark and held by the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation. The film also takes a look at Serra’s political involvement and at his work in Basel.
