American-German artist Christopher Kippenberger is taking a look at a new generation of adrenaline junkies in his latest ( ongoing) project, Kart Kids.
The film ultimately delves into the high-stakes world of German go-kart racing, which is a breeding ground for Formula 1 greats.
“This a project that I’ve been shooting for ten years now,” says Kippenberger. “It takes disposable media and reverses it. It’s an extended study not only of racing, but of its personalities and what comes next-regardless of what that may entail.”
