Art’s Home is my Kassel

„Art’s Home is my Kassel“ – shows how different people handle the sudden invasion of contemporary art and in the middle sized german town Kassel – called Documenta.

From the preparations in the beginning of 2012, through the whole “Museum of 100 days” and the wrap of dOCUMENTA(13) the film follows different protagonists and their partly very practical and comprehensive approach to the works and the art circus.

The ways how people with or without an art expertise approach and appreciate the inspirations gives a very unique insight on the meanings of art and culture.

  • SWR2, 9. Juli 2014

    "Der Blick der Regisseurinnen ist dominiert von liebevoller, nachsichtiger Ironie, gepaart mit kurz aufscheinendem Sarkasmus. Offenbar kann man gar nicht anders auf dieses Phänomen blicken. Die Kasselaner selbst nehmen die Documenta hin. Sie wiessen, dass sie der Stadt Wohlstand schenkt. (...) Letztlich verbindet der Film ein nur leicht lokalpatriotisch eingefärbtes, aber sehr witziges Porträt der nordhessischen Provinzmetropole mit dem der Kunstwelt."

  • Süddeutsche Zeitung, 10. Juli 2014

    "Dass dieses Projekt Katrin und Susanne Heinz eine Herzensangelegenheit war, merkt man in jeder Minute ihrer wilden Doku über den Kasseler documenta-Zirkus. Die größte Stärke dieses lustigen Films ist es, dass die Regisseurinnen neben den Kunstschaffenden in ihrer Festival-Isolation auch den eher desinteressierten Kasselern und ihren Klagen über die Veranstaltung Gehör schenken. Wodurch die Schwestern Zweckmäßigkeit und Wesen der documenta immer schön widersprüchlich verhandeln."

  • Kölner Stadtanzeiger, 10. Juli 2014

    "Der Tonfall der unterhaltsamen Dokumentation ist launig, liebenswürdig und nicht ohne Humor. Es werden kluge Fragen Aufgeworfen, und die Atmosphäre einer Stadt im Ausnahmezustand wird eingefangen."
