Art Documentary / 60 min / 2009
The film is unique in portraying the artist Andreas Gursky and one of his most recent works “Hamm, Bergwerk Ost”. Its path leads from Gursky’s first location viewings to several shootings at the coalmine to the studio where the image is digitally processed and montaged. It follows the genesis of the image from conception to construction to contraction to reaction.
