Blurring the boundaries between the fine and applied arts.

Is This Art? is a fascinating 17 Volume DVD series featuring interviews with leading practitioners and conceptual artists from media, performance, visual art music and sound.

Each episode presents a series of interviews with contemporary artists intercut with images and recent footage of their work. The interviews provide insight to why, how and for whom these artists create their work, and where their passion and artistic inquiries originate from. Where are the boundaries between science, technology, politics, popular culture and art? Viewers are challenged with the question while witnessing the freeflow of imagination.
