For the 2017 Biennale of Contemporary Art in Venice, the German artist Anne Imhof took over the German pavilion with FAUST, a “punchy” opera. With this act, she denounces the structures of power and surveillance in an underlying tension.
KLASH! ART IN ACTION is a collection of short 3-minute films that offer a new perspective on contemporary art, far from the galleries and museums. The series is an encyclopaedia of decisive, unusual, radical, even impertinent but always exemplary artistic acts. It thus reveals another history of clandestine art seen from the side of the action and under the sign of the radical irruption.
