"Make Me Think: Bruce
Heinz Peter Schwerfel
A documentary on contemporary American artist Bruce
Nauman, known for his challenging, yet playful approach to conceptual art.
This is observed in his public art installation Vices and Virtues,
consisting of huge neon signs that flash the seven deadly sins. Through a
diversity of media, including sculpture, video, printmaking, and
performance, Nauman uses art to examine communication and the human
experience. Make Me Think features 60 of his pieces, including early
film projections and video installations like Clown Torture and
Anthro/Socio, and chronicles the development of a "video sculpture"
titled Violent Incident. Wrote Michael Kimmelman, chief art critic of
The New York Times, Nauman "inspires reverence, or loathing...It's
hard to feel indifferent to work like his." In English.
