Christoph Schlingensief was a multi-talented director a film, theater and opera, as well as an action and performance artist. He was radical and provocative and turned the art scene upside down more than once. His debut at the Bayreuth Festival with the staging of “Parsifal” earned him high praise from critics. In 2011, he was posthumously awarded the Golden Lion at the Biennale in Venice, a year after his death from cancer. The “opera village” in Burkina Faso was his last major project.
An exhibition now traces the development of the art rebel. It can be visited from December 1, 2013 until January 19, 2014 at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, before it moves to the MoMa Museum of Modern Art in New York.
