I had the rare opportunity to peak inside the doors of the Kunstakademie with Emil Schult. As you'll see in this short interview and tour, Schult has an inspiring view of what defines art...and he is passionate about the need for more creativity in the world.
Emil Schult is best known for his work with Kraftwerk, the internationally famous band formed in Dusseldorf in 1970.
However, Schult prefers to be known for his art these days. And when he is not working on his own art, he is mentoring art students, many of them from the Kunstakademie, Germany's largest and most forward thinking art school. It's a place close to Schult's heart, as he was once a student there himself.
Special thanks to the Kunstakademie and, of course, to
Caroline West of RhineBuzz.com

Additional thanks to filming permissions from Destination Dusseldorf, and to Henry Storch / Unique Records for music/soundtrack permissions.
