Sarah Morris at the Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus
25 Apr 2008
Lenbachhaus premieres Sarah Morris¡¯s seventh film ¡®1972¡¯. This intimate portrait of Munich citizen Dr. Georg Sieber retells the tragic morning of September 5th, 1972 when members of the terror group Black September attacked and took hostage of the visiting members of the Israeli Olympic Team in Munich. Morris mixes police surveillance footage of demonstrators and archival photographs of the 1972 Summer Olympic Games, with shots of the impressive Munich Olympiapark and a candid interview of Sieber who has a long-standing career as a psychologist and is an expert on international security matters. The film, shot on 35mm, investigates the issue of projection and planning and it's potential failures through this specific instance in history. It exposes a subjective parallel view radically different than the widely received ideas around the events of the 1972 Munich Olympics.
