The Mies van der Rohes
Sabine Gisiger, Switzerland, 2022o
A female family saga at the time of modernism, told by the women who surrounded the iconic architect Mies van der Rohe (1886 - 1969). His wife Ada, his daughters Georgia, Manna and Traudel, and his lover Lilly Reich took advantage of the opportunities offered by the new era from 1920 onwards, while suffering the constraints of the old patterns. When Mies emigrated to the USA in 1938, they had to fight alone against the barbarism of National Socialism and the war.
