Super Art Market

There is a boom on the art market since a couple of years. The works of contemporary artists are being sold for astronomical prices. Some of them cost as much as an airplane. The main protagonists of this development are gallery owners, art dealers.

SUPER ART MARKET is a film about gallery owners today. Leo König from New York, Lorenz Helbling from Shanghai, Judy Lybke from Berlin, Lora Bartlett from London and Michai Pop from Cluj, Romania are showing and explaining how they run their business, making millions. This is also a film about art in a consumerist society.
