About the event

Sergei Eisenstein was invited to Hollywood in 1930 under contract with Paramount Pictures. Fleeing from the Nazis, Brecht arrived in 1941. Both attempted the impossible, to challenge the formulas of the motion picture industry, to create works that were popular and radical. Through films, drawings, architectural models and archival documents, New York artist Zoe Beloff explores their unrealized film scenarios Glass House and A Model Family in a Model Home and reimagines their ideas for today.
