Nomas Foundation presents the exhibition “Sergei Eisenstein: The Anthropology of Rhythm” curated by art and film historians Elena Vogman (Berlin) and Marie Rebecchi (Paris) in collaboration with Till Gathmann. Numerous documents from the Soviet film director’s archives will be exhibited for the first time, including notebooks, drawings, film footage and photographs.


The exhibition explores the intersecting artistic, anthropological and political dimensions of the anthropology of rhythm in Eisenstein's unfinished film projects: Que viva Mexico! (1931–1932), Bezhin Meadow (1935–1937), and Fergana Canal (1939).
