City life and urbanity, the contrasts of inside and outside, of blurriness and focus, reflections and mirror images, playing with the viewer’s perception — these are the pictorial themes of the Berlin-based photo artist Arina Dähnick which she processed into her architectural portraits of buildings by Mies van der Rohe.

The exhibition of the international exhibition project was installed on the technical floor of Villa Tugendhat in the spring of 2020. Its presentation was interrupted due to the closure of the villa because of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, we bring you a unique video capturing the installed exhibition on the technical floor of the Tugendhat Villa through the eyes of cameraman Jiří Zykmund. The video is narrated by the voice of the author Arina Dähnick, describing the genesis of the entire international exhibition project.

The Mies Project will be on display at Villa Tugendhat again in the spring of 2021.
