The Art of Boris Lurie

Film Première

The film director Rudij Bergmann first meets Boris Lurie in New York in 1996. This first encounter with the NO!art artist leaves a deep impression: "When I first met Boris Lurie in the semi-darkness of a hallway on 66th Street, I quickly recognized his longing for Europe. And when I stepped over the threshold of his studio apartment – this breathtaking collage of remembrance – it became clear to me that Lurie had mentally never quite left the concentration camp."

The Shoah was Boris Lurie’s greatest if not his only artistic theme. Lurie opposed the fashionable art scene in New York, denounced sexism, racism, and consumerism, creating works that were provocative and disturbing and excluded from every established classification.

Rudij Bergmann, well-known for numerous ARTE films about artists from Max Beckmann to Neo Rauch, has created a very personal film that will be premièred today, eight years after Lurie’s death.
