Guided Tour through the Exhibition DURST

Secrets, power, sex, fetish, and anarchy are the political as well as aesthetic dimensions of the vampire figure. The exhibition addresses the vampire and his/her enigmatic lifestyle as a fundamental sociocultural phenomenon: When vampirism is defined as the symbolic sucking of energy and resources from other living beings and our environment, the term can also be expanded to parasitic relations and toxic conditions – and doesn’t end with the fascinating character of a living blood-sucking undead. This exhibition stakes out the reception of the vampire myth in contemporary art, which is often conveyed through pop culture, and a broader semantic field that unfolds through the figure of the vampire.

But what keeps the interest in the figure of the vampire alive for generations? And how can the desire for immortality be linked with our constant pursuit of self-optimization? Answers to these questions and the opportunity to examine the works of the exhibition will be addressed on a guided tour with our art mediator Nicole Sabella.
