in English

In the film “Karl’s Perfect Day” the artist Rirkrit Tiravanija portrays the artist and poet Karl Holmqvist through his idea of a perfect day, following him from the moment he wakes up until going to sleep. Since the 1990′s Holmqvist has worked with text and its visual representation in posters, wall drawings, installations, videos and readings. He converges fragments of songs, political pamphlets, literature and single letters as the smallest entity of text to shift meanings and create ambiguities. Similar to his artistic works, the film is a collage of people, places, sounds, images and texts – a day without extravagant aspirations but with moments of contentedness and small pleasures.

Admission €4 / concessions €2. Free for members.
