The new wunderkind of this season seems to be German Anne Imhof who just got awarded with the Golden Lion for her work “Faust” at the German Pavillion.
When being described with non-art context, think of a Berlin rough neighbourhood X S&M X Hypebeast influenced youth cultures psyched scenario about beauty, fear and society.
Artnet described it as a catwalk in hell, when the performers walk along heavy metallic beats in formation across the room like an “impossibly cool army of zombies”. Then they walk back, constantly having a very cold and exclusive death stare on their faces while being photographed and filmed by the excited audience.
her work totally seems to be in line with the anxiety of our time and a certain uneasiness replacing a carefree lifestyle…
