Box set including a book and a film on DVD dedicated to the Theatergarden Bestiarium exhibition.
A utopia born of the imagination of gallerist and author Rüdiger Schöttle.
Or a radical re-examination of the status of the exhibition as a historical and cultural format.
Or a collection of works by Bernard Bazile, Glenn Branca, James Coleman, Fortuyn/O'Brien, Ludger Gerdes, Dan Graham, Rodney Graham, Marin Kasimir, Christian Philipp Müller, Juan Muñoz, Hermann Pitz, Rüdiger Schöttle, Alain Séchas and Jeff Wall.
Or a film, a slow tracking shot through this exhibition-garden, punctuated by testamonials from project collaborators and expert observers including Bernard Blistène and Xavier Veilhan.
Or a collection of previously published texts and new writing by Erika Balsom, Chris Dercon, Tristan Garcia, Dan Graham, Vincent Normand, Rüdiger Schöttle and Guy Tortosa.
The Theatergarden Bestiarium exhibition, co-produced in 1989 by the Institute for Contemporary Art, P.S. 1 Museum, in New York, and Le Confort Moderne, in Poitiers, was acquired by the Centre national des arts plastiques, in 1990.
