Rheingold

Online, Film, Visual arts
German with english subtitles

Rheingold is a tongue-in-cheek social satire about the rise and fall of a Düsseldorf-based art consultant, who, thanks to the manipulation of receipts (artistic collages!), made a fortune and has been given a custodial sentence for it. In a light-hearted tone, the director Jan Bonny and the artist Alex Wissel explore a contemporary comedy about art in times of neo-liberal transformation and an entire generation’s loss of political values. Filmed at the Volksbühne, the stage sets heighten the surreal quality of these true fairy tales. A multipart story about the yearnings of a trickster and the bigger question: How did we get from Beuys’ dictum “Everyone is an artist” to the phenomenon of the Ich-AG?

A commissioned work for Volksbühne Fullscreen. Production: Volksbühne Berlin.

25.05.2018: The Volksbühne will screen all ten Rheingold episodes at once as a preview on the main stage. Afterwards Jan Bonny and Alex Wissel will take part in a panel discussion.
