NEW ! DRINK COLD PISS WARM by Anna McCarthy available now:

DRINK COLD PISS WARM is a poem written by Anna McCarthy during her three-month stay at the Villa Aurora - Los Angeles in Los Angeles in 2015 accompanied by imagery and research notes gathered during that time. The title references an excerpt from Henry Miller’s novel Black Spring, which similarly scolds the human race for its dealings with nature. It documents her impressions of California in its fourth straight year of drought and the accompanying environmental consequences and social issues."

A performative Installation by Gabi Blum & Anna McCarthy

Schaustelle Pinakothek der Moderne, 4-10 July 2013

anna mccarthy

Over a period of four days Gabi Blum and Anna McCarthy will transform the Schaustelle of the Pinakothek der Moderne into a tumultous, superseding and constantly en loop build-up to the end of the world, acted out by a conglomerate of artists, supernumeraries, lost folk and been-there and done-thats. 

"We're goin' down, everyday – even on Sundays !" (quote DAMENKAPELLE)  The four day show-piece is set to metamorphose into a fully accessible tableaux–vivant in keeping with the ever-present principle: To give structure chaos. Simultaneously, the occurences are to be documented from varying perspectives and transmitted live into the 'archive' situated in the 'belly of the whale', aka downstairs. Past, present and future are set to become one and shifts are commonplace. 

At the end of this whole shebang only the archive will be left to tell the tale and thus a cheapo fleamarket and an auction, which will take place on the days following, will be sure to rid the world of any graspable leftovers and scatter those remnants into that stormy wind. 

What time is it ?

...and the Universe, ... will explode later for your pleasure.” – Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
