Synopsis: Masterpieces is a five channel video installation, which caused a furore at the Berlinale. The contents, furniture and fixtures of five famous oil paintings (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe by Édouard Manet, Summer by Claude Monet, The glass wine by Jan Vermeer, Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez and Oath of the Horatii by Jacques-Louis David) are re-enacted in group therapy sessions. All protagonists of the people and things portrayed in the paintings are permitted to tell how they feel in doing so. A real tear-jerker. (Heinz Emigholz) 5 channel video installation
