For his Museum Ludwig performance work TREATISE ON THE VEIL—part of the museum’s exhihibition TRANSCORPOREALITIES—Nick Mauss “draws out resonances between disparate works from the museum’s collection, such as Jasper Johns’ 15′ Entr’acte (1961) encountering a painting of lingering performers by Erich Heckel (1928). In Mauss’ configuration, these works dialog with a projected photo archive by Carl Van Vechten and a new choreography developed with students from the University for Music and Dance Cologne.”*
Saturday and Sunday, November 23 and 24.
Tuesday and Wednesday, November 26 and 27.
Performances from 2 pm to 6 pm.
Through January 19.
