Continuing the question ‘What is a video artist’s studio?’ this artist book examines the creative process of German/Norwegian artist, Bjørn Melhus on the basis of largely unpublished footage from video shoots of the past 30 years.
The focus here lies on the making-of his works.
An essay by Felix Laubscher examines the role of the ‘hot set’ for the work of Bjørn Melhus. ‘Hot Set’ is a film language term. It means a film set that is ready for recording and needs to be left exactly as it is.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition in the studio Liebermann: Bjørn Melhus. HOT SET at Stiftung Brandenburger Tor, Max Liebermann Haus, Berlin (23 August – 20 October 2019).
