About Art is the Permanent Revolution
- Year Released:
- Directed by Manfred Kirchheimer
Director Manfred Kirchheimer ardently
investigates the relationship between art
and politics by meditating on the work of
printmakers from the past and present.
Kirchheimer goes into the studios of four
contemporary artists to document their methods
and discuss their artistic and philosophical
inspiration. Examining the etchings of Sigmund
Abeles, the lithographs of Ann Chernow,
the woodcuts by Paul Marcus and prints by
James Reed, Kirchheimer examines the ways
contemporary printmakers are inspired by
present-day politics and the historical legacy
of socially important works from artists of the
past. (Digital presentation)
