As an epiloge to our exhibition The Fate of Irony (Exhibition ends: 24 July) KAI 10 | Raum für Kunst presents on the opening night of the hafenlichtspiele videoworks by three artists of the exhibition as well as the movie Mahler by Ken Russel.

During a train ride to Vienna, the deathly sick composer Gustav Mahler reflects his life: the unhappy childhood, his first compositional attempts, including his breakthrough to success. And as a recurring motif: his excessive self-centeredness. Ken Russell ("Tommy") created a bright, ironic, exaggerated movie-biography of the composer born 150 years ago. In an extravagant, symbolic imagery, he also shows the dark side of Mahler. From the early to mid seventies, the eccentric director Russell focuses in his works extensively on well-known composer. His films "Tchaikovsky" (1970), "Lisztomania" (1975) and "Mahler" are a visual power, grotesque film trilogy.
The screening is a cooperation on the occasion of the exhibition The Fate of Irony in KAI 10, which looked into the many uses of ironic strategies in today's art.
