The book My way of knowledge – Expedition into the Abyss of alienation (Heiko Volkmer, published by Materialverlag) critically looks into questions and phenomenons that unfold when dealing with the meaning of work in our society. In doing so, three poles correspond with each other: the subjective thoughts of the author who questions his decision to study at an art school, the fictional biography of a bookbinder who finds himself back in professional orientation and various works of the humanities, such as by Karl Marx, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel or Siegfried Kracauer.

Director: Heiko Volkmer
