Join us for an exclusive screening of The Architecture of Doom, a film by Peter Cohen.

Cohen postulates a theory that the Third Reich's obsessive pursuit of an ideal society was in part a fulfilment of its leaders' own aborted creative careers. Using archival footage underscoring National Socialism's obsession with purity and order, and contrasting it with the so-called "degenerate" work of the German avant garde, Cohen attempts to draw parallels between Hitler's own subjective aesthetic views and his systematic extermination of millions of European Jews.
