On 3 November 2001, the poet Thomas Brasch died at 56 years of age. Everything and
everyone was disturbed and unsettled by Brasch. No one was safe, nothing secure.
His fundamental attitude: revolt. Artist or criminal – this was his motto. Christoph Rüter
was a friend of Thomas Brasch through to his death. He frequently had his camera
along when they were together, including a period in 1999 with Brasch recovering
from an illness and surgery. Other material includes 28 video cassettes from Brasch’s
estate, many of them his own work, with clips of himself, his surroundings, whatever
may have occupied him at a given time. Much of this material, in addition to footage
shot by Rüter, shows Brasch in the most varied moments of his life – warts and all, at
the poet’s own insistence.
