An Invitation from Lars Von Trier

Controversial film director (pictured above with his Fuck tattoo) is challenging artists around the world "to reinterpret six great works of art through the lens of their camera or recording of sound." The project, entitled Gesamt (which comes from the German word for whole or cumulative) is supported by Danish Agency for Culture and has a set of strict rules to abide by as stated on the official Gesamt website. Works of art include Irish writer James Joyce's Ulysses and rat pack member Sammy Davis Jr's Choreography.
