The 50 works by 50 international artists provides the basis for the opening evening with a boisterous and subdued relationship between text and image, between expression and indication, between speaking and writing, between writing and drawing, between looking and reading, between watching and listening. During the course of the opening evening the different artworks of >Verhau*< as well as the building, the architecture and the exhibition space are made to communicate.
There are things to show, to discuss and to hearken that already exist in >Verhau*<, but through the happenings of the evening their appearance and impact are transformed. Painting, sculpture, photography and video, artist talks, discourses and lectures are expected. The distinctness of the language meets the clarity of the pictures and vice versa.
