The Kills star in documentary about double acts in art – watch

The pair present the 'Unlock Art: Great Double Acts' online film

The Kills' Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince have starred in a new documentary exploring art's greatest double acts.

In the short film, which you can watch above, the pair explore the importance of collaboration in the artistic process and showcase artists who have worked together throughout history, including Gilbert & George, Jake and Dinos Chapman and Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

Titled Unlock Art: Great Double Acts, the film is part of a series of eight documentaries looking at the ideas behind art. Dawn O’Porter, Girls actress Jemima Kirke, actor Alan Cumming and Peter Capaldi have also presented films for the project.

The Kills released their last album 'Blood Pressures' in 2011. It was the follow up to 2008's 'Midnight Boom'.

Earlier this year, Alison Mosshart's other band The Dead Weather (with Jack White and Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertita) put out two tracks titled 'Rough Detective' and 'Open Up (That's Enough)' as part of a series of single releases running up to the release of a new album by the band in 2015.
