SynopsisWhen it comes to art, opinions differ. Value judgments are quickly made. A painter is seen as a great talent or as completely overrated – and his market value is accordingly. The value judgments of others often cause him to oscillate between the extremes. An artist's life offers room for both hype and average. A photographer and a filmmaker meet again after their orderly professional lives and take stock of their lives as artists. They interview their former fellow students, who studied at the West Berlin artschool back in the 1970s.
Influenced by the artistic environment of the Critical Realists, they found different paths for their artistic work during this highly politicized period. Some have become acclaimed artists, others work in related professions and some even precarious employment.
