'Fassbinder – NOW' @ Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin

The Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, presents the exhibition “Fassbinder – NOW” in nine rooms at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin to mark Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 70th birthday on 31st May. The presentation provides a new impetus to engage with one of the most significant German directors. The exhibition illustrates not only the film-maker's working methods, but also the coherence of his work in the cinema and its influence on the art being produced today. The exhibition thus takes in a dual perspective: both historical and contemporary. It traces the aesthetic, political and media contexts that distance our present from Fassbinder's time while simultaneously linking to it. Fassbinder – NOW will be on view until August 23rd, 2015 at Martin-Gropius-Bau, Niederkirchnerstraße 7, 10963 Berlin, Germany
