PLOT: Since the beginning of my friendship with Boris Lurie, which developed during the collaboration for the NGBK exhibitions ►NO!art and ►Boris Lurie and the NO!art (Haus am Kleistpark) in Berlin in 1995, I visited him once a year in Manhattan. In 2002 I had the idea to document Lurie's extraordinary circumstances and conversations with him about his life and art with a video camera.
With this almost 6-hour material I was able to gain Reinhild Dettmer-Finke's interest in Boris Lurie and his art. The result was ►Shoah and Pin-ups. The NO!artist Boris Lurie (2006/7) in collaboration with me.
On the occasion of the exhibition ►No Compromise! The Art of Boris Lurie at the Jewish Museum Berlin, 2016, Lurie's narratives for this film were edited from my material
