phil collins.i watched his 16mm film a few years ago.(the title was "the meaning of style").
the theme of exhibition was 00s art in berlin.. 

The English artist Phil Collins explores the construction of identity, particularly in relation to the video or television camera. Reflecting his own experiences growing up in northern England in the 1970s and 1980s, his works often use music, television and pop culture to explore social situations and transcend definitions of language, social status and locality.
the meaning of style is a single-channel video projection filmed with a group of young Malay skinheads in Penang. The skinhead subculture first emerged in Malaysia in the early 1990s, and Collins was intrigued by the translation of an English working-class subculture into a South-East Asian context, finding connections to aspects of Malaysia’s British colonial history and complex racial politics. 
The work follows no clear narrative, taking the form of a dreamlike five-minute pop music video, set to a specially created soundtrack by Welsh musicians Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl. Its spare yet visually striking scenes focus on the role of style within the skinhead subculture, including two boys primping each other’s clothes, a street fight and a girl lighting a cigarette. In the central scene, one skinhead opens a box of butterflies that alight on the heads and shoulders of the other boys, creating a visual allegory of youth’s desire for flamboyant display.

there were many artists,but i thought only he was nice.(only artist i thought nice was he?)

and i just remember one more world which i long for diving and hearing ,catching sight of the unknown "conscious" ,in itself, again,Saskia Oldewolbers'.
.. i loved every senses which i only could know in her works.
