Ingmar Bergman offers his opinions on the visual arts and the work of the artist, offering new insights into his legacy. He always insisted that he was not interested in the visual arts, especially not contemporary art. Yet, both art and artists are frequently present in his films, and he often returns to the question of the nature of art and its role in society. Regardless of Ingmar Bergman's own opinions, he has had a major influence on a number of artists. Everything Represents Nothing Is. Ingmar Bergman and Art, is published by Dokument Press in connection with an exhibition of the same name.
