An interview with Jean-Christophe Ammann.
The volume looks at Jean-Christophe Ammann's life work as curator, art expert and museum director. Ammann talks about his origins, his studies and starting work at the Kunsthalle Bern under Harald Szeemann, talks about his experiences over many years as the director of the Museum of art Lucerne, the Kunsthalle Basel and the MMK Frankfurt, philosophises about cosmology, the contemporary and dialectics, about intimacy, sexuality and pornography, about photography and Photoshop, discusses works and concepts by Marcel Duchamp, Alberto Giacometti, Joseph Beuys, Dieter Roth, Franz Gertsch, Jeff Wall, Peter Fischli & David Weiss and others, and finally analyses Lars von Trier's film Antichrist.
