On the occasion of the first Collection Night in Berlin the screening of the Arte-documentation “China’s super collectors” will take place on Friday, 23.08.2019 respectively at 8+10 p.m.
Chinese collectors are ubiquitous in the international art market. They spend millions in US Dollars on works by Picasso, Modigliani, van Gogh or the French Impressionists. At the same time, they are buying Chinese imperial artefacts – and presenting them as trophies. The Arte-documentation of “China’s super collectors” provides an exclusive look into the world of Chinese billionaires: open for the first time and thus economic and cultural politically relevant persons of a Western film crew the doors.
