We are happy to receive support from the Film- and Medienstiftung NRW for our film „An Open Attempt“, directed by Sebastian Lemke and Arne Birkenstock. The documentary draws the visual topography of the art space Hombroich as it were an intimate portrait of artistic work, thoughts and coexistence. The founder of the museum and the foundation Karl Heinrich Müller, wanted to create a utopian Eden amidst the beet fields of the lower Rhineland. The lifework of a passionate visionary, where art, architecture and nature become one. But the idea behind Hombroich was bigger: a revolutionary social experiment should bring together artists from a wide variety of disciplines, to dedicate their time radically and freely to art.
