The self-portrait in art

I create, therefore I am. Art is the expression of the uniqueness in the individual. Whether it’s Rembrandt, Dürer, Frido Kahlo or Cindy Sherman – anyone who wants to be an artist shows himself or herself and, in his or her art, his or her ego.  But why? A short excursion into the history of the self-portrait. A Bottega Berlin production for ZDF aspekte and 3sat Kulturzeit.

Fashion designer Edward Crutchley – is the future of fashion gender-neutral?

A male model in a ball gown, a man in a swimsuit: British fashion designer Edward Crutchley challenges the traditional understanding of gender roles with “genderbending.” For his current collection, the Briton was influenced by the queer culture of the 17th century. But is the future of fashion really gender-neutral?  Written and directed by Frauke Schlieckau. A Bottega Berlin production for 3sat Kulturzeit and ZDF aspekte.
