A film by Sabine Herpich. In German with English subtitles.

[Credits] [Termine] [Verleihseite] [Trailer]

At the Mosaik art stu­dio in Berlin, artists with disa­bi­li­ties are absor­bed in their work. Sabine Herpich obser­ves the artists in the cour­se of crea­ti­on and directs her gaze at the insti­tu­ti­on its­elf: its pro­ces­ses, staff and spaces. The film suc­ceeds in main­tai­ning its focus on the art its­elf rather than the han­di­caps of its creators. It is around the­se works that the insti­tu­ti­on takes form, thus com­ing into view first and fore­mo­st as an insti­tu­ti­on for art, not one for peop­le with disa­bi­li­ties. The idea of art beco­mes holistic, encom­pas­sing the peop­le who make it as well as the pla­ces whe­re it is crea­ted; it means loo­king at the works, and tal­king about them, but also art as work, com­ple­te with working hours and wage. The filmma­ker herself is not invi­si­ble. She asks the artists about their thoughts, ide­as, methods. As the artists befo­re the came­ra meet the gaze of the filmma­ker, a heigh­te­ned sen­se of atten­ti­on and sen­si­ti­vi­ty is pro­du­ced – for the moods of the works, their creators and obser­vers, as well as for this film about art its­elf, with its gent­le, yet not timid, pre­cise yet non-restric­ti­ve form.
