The first documentary about the life and work of the total artist born in Kiel in 1929 and died in Rhoendorf/Bad Honnef in 2011, shows all the defining stages of his life and presents for the first time the entire spectrum of his artistic oeuvre.
His extraordinary portrait work is a unique gallery of personalities from politics, economy, art, and spiritual dignitaries of European dimension. The comprehensive presentation of his expressionist, abstract paintings, his sculptures, and glass art in public buildings and churches opens up the possibility of rediscovering this artist.
A vital humanism, intellectual and human openness, the ability to engage in dialogue with other people across inner and outer boundaries are the ethical milestones of Hansing as a European citizen and artist.
Conversations with contemporary witnesses, friends, companions, portrayed individuals, and family members complement the materials, images, and documents to create a multifaceted image of the person and artist.
The film, realized by the artists Manuela Zimmer and Harald Kühr, opens up a multi-layered perspective, a deeper understanding of artistic motivation, ways of thinking, and inner inspirations.
A film for everyone interested in contemporary events, culture, and the spiritual aspect in art.
The DVD is available through the filmmakers' website for purchase.
