Michael Müller


€44.55 (excl. VAT)

This volume, belonging to the two-part publication accompanying Müller’s exhibition at the Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, is an invitation to readers to discover this Berlin-based artist’s rich field of reference, room by room–from antiquity right up to the present day, from the religious cult to current gender-related questions. The exuberant wealth of material that MülIer assembled for his exhibition at the Kunsthalle was already mentioned several times in volume one, but not dealt with exhaustively. What’s more, alongside the wealth of materials, MülIer succeeded in including a wealth of substantive references that led through all the Kunsthalle’s nine rooms like a mirror, constantly broadening out. The four-hour performance staged on the opening evening, “Dritte Probe für Nietzsches Geburtstagsparty 2313” (“Third rehearsal for Nietzsche’s birthday party in 2313”), which is also documented in this volume, was a magical experience for everybody involved and for all the visitors. It presented to viewers further points of reference for the materials and subject matter in MülIer’s oeuvre, and in this form is also visible to all readers.
