As Udo Kier guides us through Europe's galleries, he comes across some of the most eminent artists, curators, and film makers alive today, whilst continually saluting those who have passed. Kier ruminates on the friends he has lost along the way, friends such as Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Sigmar Polke. However, this film is not simply an homage to past greats, but a celebration of art itself in its purest form. Each of the number of strange and humorous scenes that make up Arteholic contribute to an understanding that this is about more than simply Kier's love for art. It is a love letter to art itself. Arteholic features a who's who of contemporary figures in the arts, who each reveal the personal significance they find in art and its importance in a world that, at times, can seem devoid of beauty and hope.
