KUNST MACHT BANIK – is a film about the deutsche bank kunsthalle aktion – MACHT KUNST –
where the bank invited all berlinian artists to bring their artworks, allegedly to show some of these works to the opening exhibition, but to unearth the truth, just wanted to create a flashmob of the local artscene, to get recognised and well known, as the new artful place to be.

the slogan for this event – macht kunst – is can be seen as a hidden command, which is so to say an indirect offer for the media artist renfah, to reflect on this marketing strategy by deflect this slogan into kunstmacht bank ( art does bank) or otherwise as kunst macht panik, art makes panic, both represented by the title and content of the film is a game of ambiguity, you can either read it as bank, or as panic, what happens, when you see how the forceful power of business and its impact on the precarious artists, is shaping the effects on the perception of art. Where there is no controversy or critique, just a big exploitation.
