Program Sourrounding the Exhibition "No Compromises! The Art of Boris Lurie"
Old Building, level 1, Education Room
Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin
Leonardo Ferri (played by Franco Nero) needs peace and quiet to work on his art. So he moves to the countryside, into a house where a woman was killed during the war – but being there also does not solve the problem, in fact he becomes even more nervous, uncontrolled, and unpredictable. A far too little known masterpiece by Italian director Elio Petri – part horror show in stark atonal sounds, part social grotesque of a sometimes disconcerting, melancholy kind.
Like Boris Lurie, Petri holds a distorting mirror up to both the art world, numbed through self reference, and the dull bourgeoisie that worships only the here and now.
