“all inclusive” is a performance about the aestheticisation of violence. In his new work, Julian Hetzel continues his critical research on warfare by examining the paradoxical principle of “creation through destruction” and the explosive force of image wars. While the destruction of monuments and images have become tools of strategic warfare, the museum became an extension of the battlefield. Here, violence is transformed into art and turned into products for tourist consumption. What if the souvenirs are actually trophies?
“all inclusive” juxtaposes art and war, tourists and refugees, reality and imagination in a journey through a temporary exhibition space. The audience is invited to watch a visit through a museum where reality strikes back.
