Summary

The Painter

"The Painter" follows the artist/actor as he is struggling and suffering along this process with us watching in joyful despair and what might happen next until the white canvas has turned into a finished painting. The outcome is a one-man rollercoaster that appears to be a documentary but in fact is a staged and guided improvisation with the ‘real’ process happening behind the camera. "The Painter" is a constant flow of the artist's journey with elements of farce and comedy topped with emotional moments of truth… in front of and behind the camera and leaving it up to us to decide what is real and/ or authentic.

Being one of the most significant, contemporary painters, Albert Oehlen's approach is complete refusal of the common art circus. In its own way the Film reflects this very stance. Likewise, it questions the purpose of obsolete thinking patterns created by white straight male artists of a certain age that have dominated the art world for centuries.
