About Stan Douglas: Opening and Talk%

Haus der Kunst presents the photographs Stan Douglas has produced since 2008, as well as his newest works, revealing him at an exceptional moment in his artistic career in the exhibition "Stan Douglas: Mise en Scène": In these works, Douglas has closely interwoven music, film, theater, photography, and digital formats, allowing them simultaneously to be associated with various forms of media. A focal piece in the exhibition is the video-music installation "Luanda - Kinshasa" (2013), a fictional narrative about the absent Miles Davis. Douglas also broke new ground with his theatrical production of "Helen Lawrence" (2014), in which the actors' performances are filmed in real time and immediately uploaded into a computer-generated environment. "Helen Lawrence" will run as a guest performance at the theater Münchner Kammerspiele simultaneous to the exhibition (première on 18.6). On the occasion of the exhibition opening a talk between Stan Douglas, Johan Simons, intendant of Münchner Kammerspiele, Okwui Enwezor, and León Krempel will took place.
