PERFORMANCE PROGRAM DRINKERS OF QUINTESSENCES

This group exhibition brings together twelve artists around the concept of the void in the visual arts. Minimal in their aesthetics, the selected works are driven by a critical impulse as much as a quest for the absolute. On the one hand, they question the status of authorship, art object and exhibition venue, while aiming on the other hand at transcending materiality, and visual perception.

Performances and actions will pace the course of the exhibition.
