What does modern art mean to normal museumgoers? Ulrich Seidl invites visitors and experts to talk about modern art, to discuss and reflect; their dreams, visions and fears eventually lead them to touch on sexuality and death. While researching Pictures at an Exhibition, important protagonists for later Seidl films were discovered, such as Erich Finsches (Dog Days) or René Rupnik (The Bosom Friend, PARADISE: Faith). As well, this was Seidl's first collaboration with Veronika Franz, who later became his co-scriptwriter and artistic collaborator.
