a cinematographic Project by Jan Bonny and Alex Wissel
The day after Germany won the World Cup 2014, Helge Achenbach boarded a flight to Düsseldorf and was arrested on landing. It’s the downfall of a wily art dealer who played in the big league, supplying art to major corporations to the tune of hundreds of millions of Euros. Greed and glamour collide. Now he’s behind bars. Behind the great history of the art business, the issues of neoliberalism arise – in the artworks, the spirit and bodies of the Rhineland. The main question is, how did Joseph Beuys’ motto that “Everyone is an artist” become the modern ego society? Director Jan Bonny and artist Alex Wissel present their scenic research on the topic, as a challenge to both the art and film worlds. With Matthias Brandt, Bibiana Beglau, and Joachim Król as just slightly tweaked fictional characters.
Please note that the seats are limited and we advise to be at the Kölnischer Kunstverein at least 30 minutes before the start of the screening.
