M.X. Oberg has interviewed people on contemporary art and music for three years. The result is a kind of field research on the emergence of art, our perception of it, the feeling of its over-saturation and the question of its meaning. Is there too much art around? Too many artists?
Filmed over three years and across cities such as Paris, Berlin, and Barcelona, Behind the Blue is made up of encounters and interviews with a wide range of people, conversing about the status of art in our contemporary world. A multilayered, earnest, and enriching essay on the essence of art.
