DESCRIPTION

Christoph Schlingensief (1960–2010) was one of the most seminal if controversial theatre, film, and contemporary art figures of his generation. This project attests to his striving towards “Lebenskunstwerk”—a work of life-art. Ever confronting the uncomfortable, he collapsed the systems of art and politics into an experimental immediacy, calling on the viewer to assume responsibility for the state of the world and to think it otherwise. Curated by Kathrin Rhomberg, this is a research exhibition within the framework of the project FORMER WEST (2008–2014).
