Film Works by Ruth Anderwald and Leonhard Grond, 1999–2013
What could it mean to live the life of an artist, and how can it be done? Is it a form of sleepwalking or a sullen self-assertion? How is it possible to unite literary, scientific or philosophical deliberations with art? The artist duo Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond uses film as a tool to visually discuss the present with all its contradictions, following the realization that to record images always correlates with a form of modeling reality. In their book, Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond combine a comprehensive collection of their collaborative filmic work (1999–2013) with texts by authors who have accompanied them along the way.
