Loretta Fahrenholz - Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

Loretta Fahrenholz - Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam | Gender and art | Scoop.it

The Stedelijk is showing the latest work of German artist Loretta Fahrenholz: Two A.M. (2016). The 40 minute fantasy film is based on the exile novel Nach Mitternacht (After Midnight) by Irmgard Keun—a prophetic, blackly humorous novel about the rise of the Nazis, written after Keuns escape to the Netherlands in 1937. Two A.M. deals with contemporary forms of surveillance and social control and follows the interlocking private passions and crises of a group of people at a moment when the larger social spring is wound so tight it could snap at any time.
