A Private Collection, is a documentary about a 16 mm fragment, originally shot by Alexander Rodchenko. The film has recently been rediscovered depicting Rodchenko’s stage design which was commissioned by theatre director Vsevolod Meyerhold. Newly reworked the setting is dark and the camera circles endlessly around architectural elements. It is unclear where the actual location is. Is this a house, a stage set, or do these modernist elements, which emerge and then disappear, represent Rodchenko’s estate. The film touches upon the topics of private ownership and Rodchenko’s legacy. To what extent can an artist permanently claim his own significant contributions and how can they be protected?
