Katharina & Witt Fiction & Reality

Katharina & Witt Fiction & Reality

Interpol's agents Katharina and Witt, together with informants Henry and Maske, settle accounts with art critics, art theory, art business and the art scene. For this fight, the art agents are provided with convenient organs: eyes, ears and mouth are reduced to one hole, hand and fingers are concentrated to a very active, red-painted finger nail. A weapon. The undercover art agents infiltrate the market strategically pretending to be owners of the gallery "Art In the Brothel". The new trends of cunt-painting and "the swinging brush" try to compete with disco and sports cults and, by pretending to bless the youth with galleries, also secure the jobs of art professors, museum directors and gallery owners.
