Christoph Schlingensief: Fear at the Core of Things

Christoph Schlingensief (1960–2010) was one of the most seminal if controversial theater, film, and contemporary art figures of his generation. The exhibition Christoph Schlingensief: Fear at the Core of Things, on view at BAK from 5 February till 29 April 2012, attests to his striving towards Lebenskunstwerk—a work of life-art. Ever confronting the uncomfortable, he collapsed the systems of art and politics into an experimental immediacy, calling on the viewer to assume responsibility for the state of the world and to think it otherwise.

Curated by Kathrin Rhomberg, this is a research exhibition within the framework of the FORMER WEST project (2008–2016).

Toward the Not-Yet: Art as Public Practice (BAK Studies)

BAK Studies: Toward the Not-Yet: Art as Public Practice. This module of BAK Studies builds on the learnings from two projects: Trainings for the Not-Yet (20192020), convened by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and BAK as “an exhibition as a series of trainings for a future of being together otherwise,” and the publication Toward the Not-Yet: Art as Public Practice (2021).
