Archiv der Zukunft
With exceptional image compositions, Joerg Burger has us discover the complexity of the Natural History Museum of Vienna. More than focusing on the classical criticism of the museum institution, the film highlights the multiplicity of functions and tasks of what will mostly appears as a research centre to our eyes. The passionate commitment of scientists and workers shine and embellish a portrait of the museum that lets the plurality of themes prevail on their development. Archiv der Zukunft is an instructive panorama: a musealisation of the museum?
