The Next Big Thing - Frank Van Den Engel
|Publisher||Zeppers Film & Tv|
In recent years, the contemporary art world has been subjected to drastic change. Our tastes today are no longer determined by the great museums or esteemed critics, instead directed by art dealers and mega-rich collectors. This documentary by Dutch filmmaker Frank van den Engel investigates the transformation of the art world and the consequences this shift of power is having on artists, collectors, dealers, museums – even the history of art itself. With artists Jeff Koons, Chuck Close and Adrian Ghenie, collectors Michael Hort, Thomas Olbricht, Martin Z. Margulies, Bert Kreuk and Rosa de la Cruz, and museum directors Udo Kittelman and Benno Tempel, among others.
