Rathaus Ahlen  (Arianne Olthaar, 2019)

Rathaus Ahlen

Images of the interior and exterior of the city hall in Ahlen (NRW, Germany) in its present state and in absence of people. Due to the lack of maintenance and altered ideas about design in public space, the city hall – once a showpiece - is no longer beloved and is threatened by demolition. The film ends with a number of slides that were made by the architect during the opening in1974: visitors gaze with admiration to an unknown modernity.
