Villa Tugendhat

Photographs by Dirk Brömmel

The Villa Tugendhat in Brno, built in 1929/30 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the most significant buildings of the modern age. In his work, photographer Dirk Brömmel does not deal with this architectural icon within the narrative of traditional architectural photography but instead merges the building’s past and its previous inhabitants with the present. Starting with original photos from the Tugendhat family’s photo album, Brömmel himself proceeds to search for the venues depicted in the album. Using a sandwiching process, he places the old photographs over his current images and in this way plays with reality and with time to create fascinating views of a place laden with history and stories.
