  • Chicago Drive

    1992. USA/Germany. Directed by Isa Genzken. Cinematography by Ray Wang. Made on location in Chicago, while Genzken was in town for a survey of her work at the University of Chicago’s Renaissance Society, this short film alternates between images of the city’s iconic modernist architecture (a powerful influence on Genzken’s visual art practice), and vistas of Chicago’s South Side. 27 min.

  • The Little Bus Stop [Scaffolding, 2007–2009]

    2012. Germany. Directed by Isa Genzken and Kai Althoff. With Genzken, Althoff. Genzken’s most recent film, which premiered in Berlin last year, is a collaboration with Althoff, constructed as a series of scenes that feature both artists as various characters, from prostitutes to police to babies. Shot on location in Berlin, Cologne, and New York, it’s a comedic picaresque that plays on the clichés of the buddy movie, and an absurd but moving tribute to the bond of friendship between kindred souls. 71 min.
