ordinary freaks

The principle of coolness in pop culture, theatre and museum

  • 60%art
  • 40%pop
References to pop culture continue to feature undiminished in all genres of art. A frequent impression is one of attempting to capture the atmosphere of nightlife, concerts and social milieux otherwise inaccessible to the general public – the street, as it is known – in art formats that are as wild as possible.
“ordinary freaks” was created in collaboration with the German theatre director and musician Schorsch Kamerun. Not only does it interrogate the exhibition format itself, but also those artistic practices that operate at the intersection between performance and pop. The show sets out on an ahistorical search, including practical reflection – on the inflationary manifestations of the unconditional need for authenticity and the misunderstandings it engenders.
