Lene Berg | Norway | 2008 | 30 min
Using clippings, photos, illustrations and images of varied nature, Berg shows us the famous Stalin-Picasso case, that is, the big mess that happened when Louis Aragon commissioned Picasso, a well-known communist, to paint a portrait of Stalin.
SHAVING THE BARONESS
Lene Berg | Norway | 2010 | 8 min
New York, 1921. Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp make a film in which they shave Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven's pubic hair. A film lost and never shown, as conceived by Lene Berg.
THE WEIMAR CONSPIRACY
Lene Berg | Norway | 2007 | 13 min
Weimar, historical city, home of famous men like Goethe, Schiller and Nietzsche, and hot spot of the Nazi years. Berg explores how monuments can build a place in the mind of someone who visits them, an illustrious past, now emptied and shallow.
