Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg in "Berlin"Preview

Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg describe the spontaneity in generating ideas for their animated films in this preview of the upcoming “Berlin” episode from Season 9 of the “Art in the Twenty-First Century” television series.

“It’s not so interesting if I know everything that’s going to happen in the animation,” says Djurberg. “I lose interest in it, because then I’ve already seen it in my head.” Adds Berg, “It’s more about letting things pop up and just knowing which things to grab.”

Season 9 of “Art in the Twenty-First Century” premieres September 21 at 9:00 p.m. on PBS. “Berlin” airs September 21 at 10:00 p.m.

Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg

Nathalie Djurberg was born in Lysekil, Sweden, in 1978. Hans Berg was born in Rättvik, Sweden, in 1978. Mixing sculpture, sound, and filmmaking, the duo has collaborated since 2004 to create absurd and bawdy clay-animation films and installations. Their work exposes an undercurrent of psychologically charged human and animalistic desires with the sweet veneer of a childhood fairytale.

“I don’t write ideas up. I never do, because the one that matters stays anyway—or they come back in another form.”
