WHY ARE WE CREATIVE: THE CENTIPEDE'S DILEMMA, 2018
Germany | HDD, Color, 84’ | German, English, French
Director: Hermann Vaske
Filmed over 30 years, this documentary is centered on a single question: “Why are you creative?” The director documents the answer to this question with a journey that spans from visual art to music and from literature to politics. This journey, which started off as a personal quest and turned into a philosophical problem, brings together the most influential figures of the 20th century as well as those from the beginning of the 21st century. The film is a collage of the various responses to this question from names such as David Bowie, Stephen Hawkins, David Lynch, Marina Abramović, Yoko Ono and Ai Weiwei.
This film will be on view from June 20, 12.00 - June 22, 12.00.
