SCISSORS & GLUE: THE MIAMI PROJECT explores art in real time in the vibrant city of Miami. This documentary takes an intimate look at a young city with an old soul. It examines the way in which artistic expression and exhibition relates to and also influences community development. SCISSORS & GLUE dares to ask: “Which is more powerful, culture’s influence on art or art’s influence on culture and what is the responsibility of art in urban society?”

SCISSORS & GLUE follows Helmut Schuster on his journey as a gallery owner in Berlin to the founding of his new Gallery Schuster in Miami. Also highlighted in this film is the emergence of Art Basel Miami Beach as one of the largest art fairs in the world and its major impact, not only on the art community, but on Miami as a whole.

In SCISSORS & GLUE some of the world’s most important gallery owners speak in front of the camera for the first time ever.
