The photographer

  Benjamin Katz knows them all: Georg Baselitz, Joachim bloomer, Anna and Bernhard Johannes Blume, Jan Hoet, Ora Katz, Walther König, Ralf Küpper, Markus Lupertz, Jonathan Meese, Werner Nekes, Rudolf Springer, Maria Anna Tappeiner, Cony Theis, Rose Marie Trockel, Verdi Quartet, and Andreas Walther.

The stars of the art world in need, such as stars in other media, including in particular the permanent presence. And hardly anyone has the stars of the art scene in recent years and decades, accompanied so extensively and repeatedly photographed as Benjamin Katz. Jürgen Heiter has imitated in his portrait of the portrait artist’s style and working methods of Katz, as he followed, like that of the man like a shadow, making himself invisible, he forgot his presence to create such moments Zweisame solitude, where possible, the Filmed close to himself was.

divided into 20 parts, the arrangement is closed every dramatic escalation, the resulting picture portraits of makers in both senses, because on the one hand Jürgen Heiter shows the photographer at work, get to the other Spectators also art sizes and get an idea of closer links between the cat and his artists. This is sometimes banal, sometimes philosophical, provocative and sometimes simply well observed. Nevertheless, the film remains entirely in his world, he has hyper-intellectual and academic, stiff and fitted with a huge theoretical superstructure. For the chance in this short film viewer is not runaway artistic pleasure, but at best a work for Kunstbesessene.
