JONATHAN MEESE: FREE PERFORMANCE EVENT IN TATE TURBINE HALL
NOEL COWARD IS BACK: Dr. Humpty Dumpty vs. Fra No-Finger
Saturday 25 February
10pm-11pm in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern; free; no
booking required
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=907
Cannibalising images, texts and all manner of cultural
detritus from sources as varied as Stanley Kubrick, Richard
Wagner, Adolf Hitler, Yukio Mishima, the Marquis de Sade,
and Dr No, Jonathan Meese's installations and performances
are some of the most provocative and dynamic to have emerged
in Germany during the past decade. This performance
unleashes Meese's unique and mischievous mythology in Tate
Modern's Turbine Hall for an unforgettable night of epic and
playful absurdity.
