75 years ago an infamous art exhibition opened in Munich. On display were images and sculptures, which had been raided from public galleries by government officials of the Third Reich. The organisers ridiculed the shown works and marked their creators as degenerate – and dangerous. Entartet is an audio installation that reflects on this exhibition. Using original text from the exhibition’s guidebook, it creates a space to listen, and to imagine what can no longer be seen. Presented by Vanishing Point Theatre Company,
Entartet creates a space to listen, and to imagine what can no longer be seen. Entartet deals with the very dark side of populism and state-sponsored intolerance and creates a space for an ultimately very personal experience.
Entartet is created by Kai Fischer in association with Vanishing Point theatre company and CCA Glasgow, and is on at Bonhoga Gallery, Weisdale, Shetland, until the 10th November 2013.
