16 Feb-9 May 2005. The exhibition Dionysiac follows a singular concept emanating something of Friedrich Nietzsche and binding together the 14 contemporary artists taking part. There is a wide range of events from Kendell Geert, Gelatins performance artwork and films by the likes of Paul McCarthy and John Bock. The reference to Dionysus, god of wine and intoxication, is central to the concept of the exhibition which reflects on the specific relationship between art and life. The prevalence of drug and alcohol-induced thinking is balanced with a plentiful dose of irony. The featured artists are John Bock (Germany), Fabrice Hyber (France), Chistoph Bchel (Switzerland), Richard Jackson (USA), Maurizio Cattelan (Italy), Martin Kersels (USA), Malachi Farrell (Ireland), Paul McCarthy (USA), Gelatin (Austria), Jonathan Meese (Germany), Kendell Geert (South Africa), Jason Rhoades (USA), Thomas Hirschhorn (Switzerland), Keith Tyson (UK). Tickets cost 7 or 5 with discounts.
