We’ll visit artist Maximilian Magnus in his beautiful studio space in Charlottenburg.
"The world is my stage, both with regards to the every day as well as to grand gestures: large paintings, complex stage design, international collaboration or teaching at my school is just as much part of my multi-layered artistic work, as the interior design of my flat or the preparing of my meal – I create aesthetic composition in each and every aspect of my life.(...)"
