Synopsis
A psychodocumentary music film about Bazon Brock, a fascinating philosopher and art and social critic, provocateur. Harald Falckenberg has called him a universal genius. In his Berlin gallery 'Denkerei' [Thinkery] with the 'Amt für Arbeit an unlösbaren Problemen und Maßnahmen der hohen Hand' [Office for Work on Unsolvable Problems and High-Handed Measures], his house in Wuppertal, in his garden, at appearances in museums, galleries, universities, the ZKM arts centre in Karlsruhe, Cabaret Voltaire and Vienna, the camera meanders through Brock’s world of ideas, which move from Wagner and Nietzsche to Sloterdijk, Neo Rauch, Parcifal, Uli Hoeness and housewives. Watched by animals, including many birds. Bazon: everything is 'contrafact', 'tickling autonomy' and music, from punk to opera.
