- Christoph De Boeck - 'Hortus'
Christoph De Boeck focuses together with Patricia Portela on the secret life of trees and plants. A remnant of the green world that once allowed humans to evolve. Messages and sounds can be discovered in their garden. Natural sounds? Or was that flower's buzz created electronically? A network of discrete electronics translates light intensity, branch movement and sap flow into sound. http://www.kaaitheater.be/festival.jsp?festival=43

- Bruce McLean - Soup (A Concept Consommé)
Short Film Program 'Observation - Reflection - Projection' | The screening is followed by a Q&A with Isabell Heimerdinger and Bruce McLean. Soup (A Concept Consommé) displays McLean's keen script-writing skills. Accentuating the theatre of restaurant-going, Soup takes its theme from the history of Modernist sculpture and the observations of manners, gestures and behaviours of staff and customers in an up-market restaurant. Incisively humourous the film derives from a concern with the seemingly trivial aspects of appearance and body language, and how they inform the different identities we consciously and subconsciously assume.

- Manor Grunewald in 'collide to reunite'
With: Leigh Wells U.S.A. - Isabelle Cordemans B - James Gallagher U.S.A. - Manor Grunewald B - Tom Woestenborghs B - Veerle Symoens B - Emmeline De Mooij NL - Lidy Jacobs NL - 7S Gallery presenteert de collage tentoonstelling "collide to reunite". Acht kunstenaars uit binnen- en buitenland geven een actuele invulling aan het genre collage. Al te vaak wordt collagekunst geassocieerd met het toevallig ontdekken van motieven tijdens het lezen van kranten, tijdschriften en boeken. De deelnemende kunstenaars trachten dit te doorbreken. Met behulp van gevarieerde technieken en materialen gaan de acht elk op hun eigen wijze om met het medium collage. Ze komen los van het klassieke knip en plakwerk en maken onder andere gebruik van schilderkunst, fotografie, make-up, kleeffolie, digitale collage, assemblage, etc ... - http://www.7sartgallery.com

- Hermann Nitsch
In an extensive solo exhibition, the Carinthian Museum of Modern Art is showing the complex and multifaceted work of Hermann Nitsch one of the most important and controversial contemporary Austrian artists. The exhibition shows works from all the periods of the extensive yet extremely compelling uvre, which is the culmination of the total artwork, the Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries. It refers to all disciplines and resources of sensuous expression used by the universal artist Hermann Nitsch to appeal to all five senses and combine them in an extreme overall experience, aiming towards heightening and orgiastic intensification of feeling and perception. The overview ranges from early paintings and drawings from the 1950s in which the artist recreated representations of religious figures by historic predecessors such as Rembrandt and Tintoretto through action paintings, splatter paintings and picture objects, right up to current paintings. Special attention is given to his graphic art, ranging from informal drawings through architectural drawings for the Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries, to his breathtaking prints. Also included are photographic and film documentations, as well as action relics, music, scriptural scores, colour spectrums and a collection of scents which complete the survey of all areas of this total artwork. A special highlight is the Burgkapelle, which Hermann Nitsch uses in a almost idealised way to reflect the religious aspects of his own works against the background of baroque frescoes by Josef Ferdinand Fromiller. The majority of the works in the exhibition are the property the artist. Numerous other works are on loan from Austrian and international, public and private collections. http://www.mmkk.at
