It is often thought that modern art and particularly contemporary art is difficult and only understood by experts. But that isn’t true. Or rather, it is exactly outside that small circle of ‘the initiated’ that you find people whose lives have been changed since they got to know art. They quench their thirst for art not only in their private lives but also in their work with all the beautiful, exceptional, elusive and intense images that are shown in the museum. A theatre maker studies drama in the photos of Jeff Wall; a choreographer is inspired by the disfigurements in the paintings of Francis Bacon; the owner of a transport company becomes fascinated with the fate of the constructions he ships.
The series 'We Live Art' shows portraits of people whose lives have been changed by art. This series is produced jointly by the ARTtube partners.
