This program discusses how art is a fundamental need within us from birth without conditioning. One that exists for all of us. Not only does art give us the joy of making but also the pleasure of bonding, sharing and making sense of the world.

Featuring more than 20 specialists (art historians, sociologists, anthropologists, artists) this documentary series explores who we are through the medium of art, spanning from the earliest days of mankind, through our collective history, past today and into the future. It discusses how and why we are influenced by art, who funds art in an attempt to influence the way we think, if contemporary art still fulfills our creative needs and desires and what could become the art of tomorrow. Travel from New York to Paris, from Seattle to London, from Washington DC to Vancouver and meet people who are, one way or another, connected to art. They are artists, art historians, anthropologists, sociologists, neuroscientists, curators and philosophers. For all of them, art is a passion and they are here to share it with us.
