DEUTSCH

"BEYOND ETERNITY – Architecture Facing the Impermanence" ist eine Architekturerkundung im Kontext von Klimawandel, Ressourcenknappheit, zirkulären Strategien, Immobilienspekulationen und Flüchtlingskrisen.

Dieser Dokumentarfilm reflektiert über das Potenzial zukünftiger, nachhaltiger Architektur jenseits der dominanten Perspektiven der nördlichen Industriestaaten. Im Rahmen eines Besuchs der „Sharjah Architecture Triennial“ 2023 in den Emiraten begibt der Film sich im Interview mit der in Nigeria lebenden Architektin und Kuratorin der Triennale, Tosin Oshinowo, auf die Suche nach wichtigen Fragestellungen unserer Zeit: Sollen wir so weitermachen wie bisher? Welche Architektur wollen wir? Was kostet der verschwenderische Life Style unseren Planten? Darüber hinaus kommen an der Triennale beteiligte internationale Architekt:innen / Künstler:innen aus Dänemark, Indien, Nigeria, Libanon, Ghana und Palästina über ihre spannenden Projekte zu Wort.
