The trilogy Andrea, Christoph, Martin is the continuation and probable completion of a loose series of films, which the artist started in 2006 with Polish protagonists. Consequently, Zmijewski filmed additional parts in Germany, Mexico and Italyticipants of the project agreed to be followed and filmed for 24 hours. Zmijewski then rigorously edited the cumulated material to a film of 15 minutes. The films show how strongly one’s existence is dependent on labor and employment. For the trilogie "Andrea, Christoph, Martin" the artist followed farmers with his camera. Artur Zmijewski chose this industry reasoning that the profession of farming is an ancient one, and perhaps closest to the romantic idea of the ideal occupation.
