Mensch. Herbert

In April 2016, Herbert Grönemeyer celebrated his 60th birthday. ARTE took this opportunity to acknowledge the exceptional work of Germany’s outstanding artist in a documentary that highlights a careful selection of special moments of his fruitful career. The documentary is an entertaining mix of film and various video installations in a postindustrial look. By closely combining Herbert Grönemeyer’s very personal and detailed statements with carefully chosen archive material, the film enables the viewer to get especially close to this unique artist.
