On the occasion of beuys 2021. 100 years of joseph beuys, JSC Düsseldorf shows the feature film JUPP, WATT HAMWER JEMAHT? by Jan Bonny & Alex Wissel. It is a hybrid of film and theater production, whose stage setting can also be understood as an spatial installation. The production is to be understood as a satire on the art world of the noughties in Germany, torn between politics and art, authenticity, staging and lies, morality and power. In the midst of the film’s action, Joseph Beuys appears again and again as a ghost of the past.
With Joachim Król and Bibiana Beglau, among others.
The screening takes place every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in the cinema of the JSC Düsseldorf (basement).
Jan Bonny (*1979) lives and works in Cologne.
Alex Wissel (*1983) lives and works in Düsseldorf and Munich.
