141013: Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland John Bock – Im Modder der Summenmutation

Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland John Bock – Im Modder der Summenmutation 03.10.2013 – 12.01.2014 The soap opera of performance art By Roland Groß Thanks to Google Map we know where John Bock comes from: a farm in Gribbohm, in the German province of Schleswig-Holstein, somewhere between Itzehoe and Heide, An agency could not have thought of a better name for the artist. After all, John Bock is also quasi "contra-Friesian" - a performance artist with a tendency to devise and install bizarre stages and vigorous scenarios in which he frequently takes the leading role and grasps an improvising camera – and this on the basis of mysterious “trashy” scripts, enriched with lots of meat and fresh liver. In the meantime, the artist, born 1965 in Kassel, has also presented his work at the Kassel Documenta and the Venice Biennial. Bock studied at the Hamburg Art Academy. Since 2006, he is a professor at the Academy for sculpture in Karlsruhe and he works and lives in Berlin. The director of the Bonn-based Bundeskunsthalle, Rein Wolf is now presenting the Bock-show “Im Modder der Summenmutation” as the kick-off event for his start at the Bundeskunsthalle. Wolf describes Bock as an artist belonging to the “mid-career generation, a leader of the generation after Kiefer, Lüpertz, Baselitz and Polke”. The Bock event includes films, installations and five “lectures” performed live. In the centre of the exhibition is a kind of set installation, a shooting location for Bock’s newest production, which will subsequently be screened during the exhibition. Performers will re-enact some of Bock’s lectures and films in an altered form. In his presentation, Bock tangles found everyday objects and various identities into multimedia performance labyrinths.
