Tristan und Isolde : opera in three acts by Richard Wagner( Visual )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in German and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glyndebourne's celebrated production of Nikolaus Lehnhoff's Tristan und Isolde is a supremely intelligent achievement; gravely beautiful, haunting and meditative, it is deeply reflective rather than visceral, fortified by Roland Aeschlimann's stunningly effective set, a womb-like space through which the protagonists move like gods."-- Original container
Wolfgang Mattheuer by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfgang Mattheuer, together with Bernhard Heisig and Werner Tübke, is one of the main protagonists of the Leipzig School. With works such as Behind the Seven Mountains (1973) the graphic artist, painter and sculptor is one of the most controversial and yet most celebrated artists of the former GDR. With the use of mythology, literary references, and ambiguous details, he subverted the ideological edicts of the system. This film presents the great works of this reserved, yet perceptive 'picture maker'. An insightful interview with Mattheuer introduces us to his eclectic visual world and his metaphorical response to contemporary events and the GDR regime
Bernhard Heisig by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mists of war and violence, the Harlequin, trumpet in hand, drifts through ravaged landscape passing a cripple and a marionette: Bernhard Heisig's pictorial worlds shock the viewer by depicting the great dramas of German history. Both a victim and a perpetrator in World War II and in the GDR dictatorship, the artist's search for sense and truth led him to his moving image formulas. Director Reiner E. Moritz converses with the renowned ex-principal of the Leipzig Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (Academy of Visual Arts) about his work, which influenced the development of art for many decades in the rigid GDR system. "I can only really paint rage well. Rage!" Bernhard Heisig
Willi Sitte( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in German and English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painter and government official - the two sides of Willi Sitte which made him the most important yet most controversial East German artist. Portraying the working class, defying imperialism or revealing intimate togetherness, he became the leading figure of Socialist Realism. His career in the Association of Fine Artists (VBK) and the Central Committee (ZK) of the SED elevated his status to that of 'Prince of East German Painting'. Reiner Moritz met the controversial, first-rate draughtsman in his studio after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Through his life and work, he traces the story of Sitte's artistic development in the service of socialist ideology
Werner Tübke by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Step right up into the world of Werner Tubke! The painter and illustrator from Leipzig created fantastical imagery, replete with virtuosity and a love of storytelling. In the style of the old masters, he transformed the everyday and the political into something that transcends time, and in that way developed his own distinct, anachronistic viewpoint. As a co-founder of the Leipziger Schule, Tubke paved the way for a figurative art, which has earned him international recognition since the 1970s. Reiner Moritz met with the GDR's extravagant prince of painting in his studio and accompanied him at work on his showpiece, the German Peasants' War panorama in Bad Frankenhausen
Harald Metzkes( Visual )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierrot, the Harlequin and Don Quixote come from Berlin. They are the actors in Harald Metzkes' paintings, the parable-like characters in the great tragicomedy of human life, the ambivalent interplay between 'black and white' in daily as well as political life. Using characters from literature, mythology and the circus, Metzkes rejected the ideological appropriation of the GDR state apparatus. His melancholic sensualism made him a protagonist of the Berlin School. Reiner E. Moritz visited the 'Cézannist' shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In conversation with Metzkes, he traces the life and work of one of East Germany's most lyrical artists. "Man is ultimately alone with his inner self, and he will remain so." Harald Metzkes
