In this episode from a series of short films in which artists explain to their parents what their work is about, visual artist Arno Coenen talks with his father. In a small grey studio, where a still life of oranges and a tea set is the only distraction. Why Arno's self-brewed beer is a form of art? This question appears to be complicated. While drinking beer, father and son have difficulties finding an answer. When is something art? When does something become art?
