The Judicial Murder of Jakob Mohr (CZ, 2016, Czech with English subtitles, 63 min) recounts the story of the psychiatric patient and artist Jakob Mohr, who was convinced that his actions were being controlled by his doctor with the aid of a mysterious machine. Mohr depicted this machine in many of his drawings as a wooden box that transmitted beams or waves that passed through his body and took control of him. The drawing Justizmord (Judicial Murder) from 1909–1910 is of a trial depicted from self-contradictory perspectives. The victimised Mohr appears in the role of the accused and his doctor is shown to be an eavesdropper and manipulator influencing the machine and the institution of the court. Mohr identifies many disguised patients and doctors who support his theory of the monstrous conspiracy against him. The drawing becomes the scene for a staged session of the court where Mohr is presented as artist, patient and criminal and in which not only his visions but also other motifs and figures associated with art brut lay claim to their own right to exist. Mohr offers us a report on the details of the legal trial that takes place in his head and into which fragments appear from the outside world of his medical records, criminal records, and an analysis of his drawing from the point of view of its aesthetic qualities.

The film and performance were created and produced in collaboration with Are | are-events.org and supported by the Czech-German Fund for the Future, the City of Prague, the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and its Culture Fund, and PLATO – platform (for contemporary art) Ostrava / City Gallery Ostrava and Trojhalí Karolina, association of legal entities.
