CineMerit Award to Udo Kier - Arteholic
Filmfest 2014

German Age Rating

Film and art legend Udo Kier is ARTEHOLIC. He lives and breathes art. He is addicted to art. A living art piece.
Melancholic, megalomaniac, merry.
A tour de force through the Centre Pompidou, the Städel Museum, the Museum Ludwig, the Lousiana Museum and the Hamburger Bahnhof.
On his journey he meets artists like Rosemarie Trockel, Marcel Odenbach and Jonathan Meese, curators like Udo Kittelmann, Philipp Kaiser, Max Hollein and Bernard Blistene, filmmakers like Nicolette Krebitz and Lars von Trier.
The living are saluting the dead: Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Robert Mapplethorpe and Martin Kippenberger. Magic and Loss.
Kier's trip is a rollercoaster ride into the addiction and abyss of art.
An overdose which ends tragically for the ARTEHOLIC.
