Documentary: Wang Guangyi is one of the founding fathers of contemporary Chinese art and a celebrity of the international art scene. Liu Gang is a young, rising photo artist on the brink of a breakthrough. Both artists are struggling with the dichotomy of the demands of the art market on the one hand and the desire to make original Chinese art on the other. While multi-millionaire Wang suffers a philosophical crisis, newcomer Liu tries to find a pragmatic approach. The double portrait Chimeras is more than just two artists' biographies, but also sketches the precise profile of a Chinese identity crisis.
