"Sometimes it gets out of hand and turns into music"
The exhibition strives for an artistic survey and contextualization of the extensive oeuvre of Conrad Schnitzler (* 1937 in Düsseldorf, † 2011 in Berlin). It will bring together the audiovisual works of the self-proclaimed "intermedialist" and bring them to life in the exhibition spaces of the Kunsthalle. A festival program invites the artist's companions and successors to intervene in these spaces and to contextualize and reflect on his work through talks, installations, performances, screenings, and concerts.
Curated by Stefan Schneider and Linnea Semmerling together with Gregor Jansen and Alicia Holthausen.
