Schimmel Projects - Art Centre Dresden is proud to present the exhibition ANGSTLUST. Can you resist the evil of the thriller? by Theo Huber, Magdalena Schön and Kryštof Strejc. The exhibition is curated by Raiko Sánchez and Miriam Schröder.
ANGSTLUST is a German term which is used to describe the tingle of fear. Instead of exhibitions, most people usually tend to link the expression with either horror movies or fairs. In ghost trains grotesque scenery, sounds and lights arouse curiosity among the visitors. For the exhibition, Raiko Sánchez and Miriam Schröder creates a space in which the works are put in scene and presented in a variety of perspectives, in which the observer has the possibility to move around. Video, sculpture as well as painting are being made tangible from an experiencing and an associating point of view.
