Kunstverein will celebrate its first anniversary on the 18th of September with a benefit event featuring a special opening of the exhibition High Level Margins With A Catalogue by Nedko Solakov and a series of unusual boat rides hosted by American artist Doug Fishbone.
Doug Fishbone’s performances weave elaborate narratives and visual tapestries from familiar freely found imagery that question the way information is presented, manipulated and processed in the current cultural and visual landscape. Interested in the politics of representation the artist’s monologues constantly shift, narrating grey areas between our perceived notions of fact and fiction, myth and propaganda, comedy and advertising.
The evening starts at 20.00 at Aan de Amstel, Weesperzijde 42a, which besides hosting drinks and music, also functions as information and gathering point from where you will be escorted to the appropriate locations.
Doug Fishbone’s performance starts at 20.30 and 21.30 and Nedko Solakov’s installation is open throughout the evening but limited to five persons at the time.
Tickets for the benefit event are 50 Euro and include a yearlong membership (worth 50 Euro). Members have free admission.
For reservation please RSVP before 13 September to firstname.lastname@example.org
