An Absurd Lecture: The Art of John Bock meets the art of Improv
Senior Curator Heather Pesanti unpacks topics of humor and absurdity in the history of art, tracing it to present examples within John Bock’s exhibition.
The Hideout Theatre will perform live comedy inspired by Bock’s artwork and Pesanti’s discussion—a one-time, original improvised performance paying homage to Bock’s work and the art world at large.

The exhibition “The Next Quasi-Complex” will culminate in a live lecture, scheduled for September 8th, in which the artist and the actors Lars Eidinger and Sonja Viegener will activate the mobile stage of When I’m looking into the Goat Cheese Baiser, navigating around the installations “like a fly around a carcass.”
