Politics and art, Brexit and crockery

Can ceramics provoke? Perhaps: In his works, the British artist and crossdresser Grayson Perry blurs the boundaries between modern art and handicraft – with the help of some headstrong crockery and tapestries. In his documentary about Brexit, produced for Channel 4, he looks for 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. Germany premiere!
