Summary Throughout his creative life, artist and filmmaker Jürgen Böttcher explored the theme of art and artists. This DVD includes six filmic milestones on this topic: Three of many (1961), Shunters (1984), Hermann Glöckner : a short visit (1984) and the Transformation trilogy (1984). One of (East) Germany's most important documentarists, Böttcher created over 40 films with a painter's eye. His debut film about his art students, Three of many, was banned until 1988. The prize-winning cinéma verité film Shunters screened at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2005. Hermann Glöckner : a short visit is the only documentary ever made about this German constructivist artist. Transformation trilogy is a set of overpainting films (Potter's bull, Venus after Giorgione, Woman at the clavichord) that were the only experimental films ever made at the state-run East German DEFA Film Studios
