ATTA ATTA – ART HAS BROKEN LOOSE (CHRISTOPH SCHLINGENSIEF - DVD EDITION) (Atta Atta – Die Kunst ist ausgebrochen (Christoph Schlingensief - DVD Edition)) Christoph Schlingensief, D 2003, 962 min

"Who can use the space of art, wouldn't be a terrorist." Christoph Schlingensief

With his theater and art actions, as a filmmaker and opera director, Christoph Schlingensief (1960 – 2010) shaped cultural and political discourse in Germany over two decades. The theatrical production “Atta Atta” – Part 1 of Schlingensief’s “Atta trilogy” – is set between his parents’ home, an amateur film club and his alter ego’s studio.

Once Schlingensief has razed his own biography, “Atta Atta” unveils a campsite with a perch, artificial turf and fake flowers – this is where art has made itself comfy. The rest of , “Atta Atta” is Schlingensief's attempt to break loose from this gilded cage through pure actionism.
