Real Estate Avantgarde »Real Estate Avantgarde«, HD, 5:20 min., 2010 ?Real Estate Avantgarde? is a fictitious promotion trailer for a real estate investment project in St Petersburg. The investor Igor Burdinsky has purchased the former textile factory ?Red Banner?, a masterpiece of avantgarde architecture, and is now seeking partners to realise a cultural and/or business centre. While the investor draws on the symbolic power of avantgarde architecture, the film in turn appropriates this business strategy.
