Fliegen und Engel – Ilya & Emilia Kabakov und die Kunst der «totalen» Installation

Niels Bolbrinker, Kerstin Stutterheim, DE 2009, 93’, D

Ilya Kabakov is one of the most significant and versatile contemporary artists worldwide. The film links the art spaces of the Kabakovian universe with images from everyday life and traces the reality from which the works were developed. In interviews and in conversations, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov offer insights into the interrelations between biography and artistic work. Kabakov is fascinated by the idea and compelled by the thought of creating spaces of remembrance from the rubbish of everyday life that allow us to experience the inevitability of their becoming art.
