14.05.2020 at 7 PM
ONLINE SCREENING @ CINEMA GALERIES
The Design Museum Brussels, in collaboration with Cinéma Galeries, invites you to pay homage to Alessandro Mendini (1931-2019) – one year after his passing – with the film I Wanted to be Walt Disney.
Creator of a parallel universe, ironic and tragic, intimate and able to speak to the world, in any language – architecture, art, design, writing, and critique. Alessandro Mendini telling the story of a dream which become true, like Walt Disney. “My way of acting and designing is an autobiographic need”, he says. “I have the feeling of belonging to the past. I use antique methods, far away from the today’s logic, such as the pencil. Although I have always criticized it, even my search for beauty is old fashioned.” A research accompanied by many encounters – Alberto Alessi, Emilio Ambasz, François Burkhardt, Piero Bisazza, to name a few – by obsessions, the utopias, such as designing the perfect object.
