On the occasion of the media conference for his retrospective exhibition at Fondation Beyeler in Basel and an exhibition that showcases a representative survey of his drawings and colored graphic art at Kunstmuseum Basel in 2018, the German painter and sculptor Georg Baselitz talks about his work. He talks about why an artist becomes an artist, why he collected paint residues in a shoe box as student at the art academy, how he thinks his paintings have aged over the course of time, and what his plans for the future are. This video is in German language with English subtitles.
