For one year only, This is Berlin, Not New York, will be available to watch on Vimeo. Full length!!

This Is Berlin Not New York from Ethan H. Minsker on Vimeo.

This was the first in a series of films about art, travel, and the Antagonist Movement, by Ethan Minsker. Look for The Dolls Of Lisbon and, coming soon, Self Medicated: a Film about Art.

Plot Outline: An inspiring look at New York underground artists making art and friends on the other side of the world.

In 2007, ten New York-based artists traveled to Berlin for ten days with one purpose: to experience life artfully. They put on an exhibition in a local gallery, displayed artworks on the street, transformed an abandoned building into an original work of art, and connected with Berlin artists.
Featured in the film: Arturo Vega (artistic director for the Ramones), Ted Riederer (exhibited at PS 1 Contemporary Art Center), Ethan H. Minsker (founding member of the Antagonist Art Movement), Richard Allen, Brett Farkas, James Rubio, Un Lee, and Crispy T.

Screenplay: Ethan H. Minsker
Director: Ethan H. Minsker 
Producers: The Antagonist Movement

"Original musical scores and animated artwork definitely enhance this provocative examination of western contemporary art and the ongoing tension between commercialism and creativity for its own sake.” –Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine
