FASHION SHOW: SATURDAY, JAN 9; 7.00 pm

Topsellers_1



We would like to invite you to take part in a wonderful and gobsmacking event. Dresden International Topsellers is a situation piece that realizes itself from Jan 8 – 10, 2016 in the midst of KÜNSTLERMESSE DRESDEN. The event is designed as an intervention and merges social practice and walk-in art installation. Lots of weird atmosphere, selected artworks, lectures, performances, and a sell-out area for wearable art pieces and other stuff construct and build a (post/turbo/super)capitalist scene. Integrated in a very conventional and a bit outdated fair, we will UFO-like drop a strong situation on the found framework that maybe—by your participation—qualifies as a intellectual container for art and quasi-commercial goods and forms a close-to-real life simulation of the global embedded in the local.

“Some Things make a great appearance.”

***

“it is you it is us and the holes in the world“

***

“this is so contemporary”

***

“it is radically why-not”

***

don’t forget, it is all completely made up and doesn’t help anyone! just like any other thing: MAY OR MAY NOT BE A THING.
