synopsis

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The first appearance of movement in art – who did it and when? Who painted the first night painting? When is it depicting naked and when is it depicting nudity?

The series shows artists and their work that crossed a line by presenting something which had never been done before. Art isn’t created in a vacuum – it can be an expression of political power, of religion, of worldview, of scientific advancements and societal development. First and foremost, art is an expression of the artist and the artist’s perspective.

In an unconventional approach, associative chains and transitions between images and themes come fast and furious, with quick jumps between the past and the present. We mix past masters with modern media and with everyday life.
“THE FIRST TIME – Innovations in Art”: a crazy journey through art history, moderated by comic-strip artist Jan Neidigk and art historian Florian Heine.

TV-series by Hanni Welter & Kirsten Esch
