"the film about max bill (1908-1994) moves between the dynamic fields of art, aesthetics and politics. max bill was probably the most important swiss artist of the 20th century and the most famous student to come out of the legendary bauhaus in dessau. he was an ardent anti-fascist and all his avant-garde work as an artist, sculptor, architect and typographer showed a social responsibility and environmental awareness right through his life. his views have become incredibly topical."

The film will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker and a Swiss style reception courtesy of the Swiss Consulate. Please RSVP by Wednesday April 1 to
