As the title suggests, Werk is a film about the work of well-known artist Erik van Lieshout. Instead of being created as a traditional documentary, however, it evolved in the midst of creative/chaotic discourse about his work and how it was realised. Lieshout’s camera and his thoughts about work constantly run riot on the screen, only to end up at the Manifesta, curated by Kaspar König, in St. Petersburg’s Hermitage cellar. A film about the creative work process, doubting and despairing about the approach and the associated realisation of the artistic idea, at the end of which the WORK should emerge. Also a film for cats and cat lovers.
