With his new installation, "SOL", Kurt Hentschläger creates a radically minimalistic environment by attempting to recalibrate visitors' senses, leading them into the far reaches of their perception along subjective and objective realities. The installation builds on loss of control, shifts in awareness and a feeling of dislocation and timelessness.
The world premiere of "SOL" will be presented in the cavernous Halle am Berghain during CTM 2017 and beyond, until 19 February. Tickets are required for entry, and can be purchased online for the specific visit day of your choice.
As the installation is limited to 25 people at a time, please expect short wait times until the next available session. Advance ticket holders will be given priority over visitors who purchase a ticket at the door. Visitors will also be required to sign a waiver, due to the installation’s destabilizing effect, which may be disturbing to some.
"SOL" at CTM 2017 is supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum and the ENCAC network
