This documentary traces the journey of fifteen young, talented New York Artists to Berlin, as they meet and join forces with their German counterparts. Together, the American and German artists explore artistic ideas and concepts while collaborating on original projects that push conventional boundaries. Original musical scores and animated artwork complement and enhance this provocative examination of western contemporary art and the ongoing tension between commercialism and creativity for its own sake.

The Antagonist Art Movement's collective endeavor to make art in Berlin away from their New York home.
The Antagonist Movement consists of an amazing group of artists who make art without pretension. By following the day-to-day experiences during their trip to Berlin, this documentary exhibits a down-to-earth and accessible side of art; It shows the heart and soul of art's intentions and value, and delves deeper than many "high-art" venue would today.
The documentary itself is a creative work involving various kinds of animations created by Antagonist members. It focuses on individual artists' work and, by doing so, shows how the members of the movement mesh.
"This is Berlin, Not New York" illustrates why street art and lowbrow is becoming this decade's art paradigm. No artist should miss this, nor any art agent, nor art lover.
