Urban architecture and its special character: At the beginning of Lotte Schreiber's cinematic homage to a concrete block of flats from the 1960s in Trieste, underlined by the soundtrack of Stefan Nemeth.
Dimitri Venkov shows examples of three important periods for the monumental architecture of Moscow: the time of Stalin, the brutalist modernism and today's glass facades.
BESENBAHN forms a continuum of the streets of Los Angeles from fleeting moments.
Taipei is one of the cities of Nikki Schuster's RECYCLERS series, where they walk the streets and weave in the found trash in animated sequences.
Michaela Grill and Martin Siewert conjure up a contemporary video work from archive footage of the Austrian Film Museum, in which the past is only visible in traces.
