Elmgreen & Dragset: Drama Queens

Alongside the wood sculpture exhibition the video installation Drama Queens by the artist couple Michael Elmgreen and Ingvar Dragset is being shown.

Drama Queens is based on Tim Etchell’s text which consists of a dialogue between seven super stars of art who meet on a theatre stage. The work was originally created for the Munster sculpture biennale of 2007 where it was shown as a live theatre performance in the Munster City Hall and as a video installation at the Landesmuseum in Munster. Michael Elmgren and Ingmar Dragset have been appointed curators of the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2009.
