Give Rise To Julius Pristauz


Performance at 20:30

with Cæcilie Heldt Rønnow, Fran Klein, Luna Mican, Marie-Claire Gagnon, Paul Ebhart

The performance which is premiered at HALLE FÜR KUNST has the title PROPAGANDA and looks at pop culture as an instrument for the dissemination of certain ideas and ideologies as well as their movements and proliferation within our society. It is an artwork that understands the re-enactment of individual, different scenes as a curatorial strategy, and drawing freely on stylistic elements from many different contexts. It is a subjective and queer narrative about the condition of our world. After the performance, the stage set will be presented as an installation with a number of text-based video works and sculptures.
