ARIK BRAUER – A YOUTH IN VIENNA
direction: Helene Maimann
The documentary „Arik Brauer – A youth in Vienna“ potrays the artist Brauer. He tells the story of his childhood in the viennese working-class district Ottakring, the surviving strategies he developed as a jewish child during the NS-era and his life as a young adult during the post-war period, when he cofounded the „Viennese School of fantastical Realism“. The film reflects on his bike tours across Europe all the way to Africa as well as on his passion for hiking. It also revisits his involvement and participation in communism.
