Art and Vegetables, A. Hipler (Christoph Schlingensief - DVD Edition)

ART AND VEGETABLES, A. HIPLER (CHRISTOPH SCHLINGENSIEF - DVD EDITION) (Kunst und Gemüse, A. Hipler (Christoph Schlingensief - DVD Edition)) Christoph Schlingensief, D 2004, 283 min

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. “Art and Vegetables” is Schlingensief's attempt at self-therapy after the trauma of directing “Parsifal” in Bayreuth.

Schlingensief has African artist Hosea Dzingirai and ALS patient Angela Jansen assume live direction of “Art and Vegetables”. Jansen intervenes via a computer from a bed in the audience. Revenants from the art scene take the stage. Arnold Schoenberg's twelve-tone opera “From One Day to the Next” provides the soundtrack.
