From Hand to Mouth

Successful, but not famous. Full of life, even though the bank account is mostly empty. How do free artists survive in neoliberal times, apart from gossip columns and high culture? How can they create opulence out of nothing? Inspiring glimpses of the lifestyles of artists from three generations show art as a seismograph and a field of reflection for social trends – and bring us back to questions like: How do we live? And what for?
A plea for a breakthrough to oneself.
