PREMIERE | Contemporary Creators – Paweł Mykietyn
The fourth film in the Contemporary Creators series is an honest in-depth conversation with Paweł Mykietyn, in which the composer confronts some difficult questions about the role of the artist today.

For example,

how can one justify a need to create new works in the age of massive overproduction?

Does direct contact with art still have as strong an impact as it once had? To what extent does one have to remain uncompromising, when is it better to trust the opinion of others, like fellow artists, audiences and critics? In the professional life of an artist, does experience go hand in hand with a sense of fulfillment and self-confidence?
