A Charming Variation tells the story of the only Banksy graffiti in Germany. Since being damaged by an attacker in February 2015 the small graffiti is hidden behind an opaque wooden paneling in Hamburg. The president of the private committee responsible for this measure, Rene Spiegelberger, explains his vision of protecting and restoring the graffiti and also reflects on the critique he has been receiving for his proposed measures. During the course of the interview, the camera focuses on details of the representative premises of the interviewee. Artworks, office furniture and the the invisible graffiti form a narrative of seemingly contradictory symbols.
