What the Art?! Roderick Hietbrink

00:08:17 Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
What happens when you drag a tree through a house? Together with Bilal, Blikopener Joe watches work by video artist Roderick Hietbrink recently bought by the Stedelijk Museum.

Bilal and Joe are amazed when the artist comes up with the idea of dragging a tree through a house and filming it. Fascinated, they want to know all the ins and outs of the process. In the Hietbrink's studio, they learn how the artist creates his work, and they come to grips with some of the objects featured in the performance.
