Event tip: 'It Truly Pays – The Crime Film'

Eyes & Ears of Europe

UntilJune 2, 2013 the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich will show the exhibition 'ItTruly Pays – The Crime Film'. The crime film is among the most popular genresin both cinema and television. Often the plot revolves around the classicquestion: who dunnit? In every crime case, the solution to this puzzle isclosely linked to the motive. What could possibly have led the figures tocommit such deeds? The human motivations for committing crime have long been asource of inspiration for many well-known directors, actors and composers whohave often given narratives of theft or murder genuine filmic quality. Makinguse of both full-length works as well as long-running or seemingly endlessseries, the exhibition investigates the different kinds of crime films: fromthe children’s crime story to the detective film and from the contract killerto team crime in which the gangsters are often depicted as appealing figures.In addition, “It Truly Pays” examines the ways in which tension and horror areproduced in order to manipulate our ambivalent relationship to evil. 'It TrulyPays – The Crime Film' until 6 June 2013 at the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich,Austtellungsstrasse 60, CH-8005 Zurich. Opening hours: Tuesday and Thursdaythrough Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, Wednesday from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m.,closed on Mondays.
