Can ceramics provoke? Perhaps: In his works, the British artist and cross-dresser Grayson Perry blurs the boundaries between modern art and craft—with the help of some headstrong pottery and tapestries.

In his documentary on Brexit, produced for Channel 4 TV, he looks at the reasons for and against the decision. He talks with Remainers and Brexiteers, using their ideas for a work that links politics with art: Two huge vases that symbolize the hopes and fears of Brits.

German premiere!
