The Burning Man festival as you've never seen it before, presented by artist duo Römer + Römer. Text in English and German.
What began as a small bonfire on a beach in San Francisco in 1986 has evolved into a cultural phenomenon of epic dimensions – the Burning Man event in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. At the end of August every year, around 70,000 people come together at Black Rock City, a temporary city in the desert that exists only for eight days. The event, which features hundreds of interactive art installations, art cars, and performances, culminates in the burning of the “Man”, a 40-feet tall effigy that is the centrepiece of the celebration. In 2017, the Berlin artist couple Römer + Römer travelled to Nevada to take part in the event. Using a complex technique, they subsequently converted their photos of the festival into a series of striking large-format panel paintings that capture the utopian spirit and carnivalesque essence of Burning Man. Text in English and German.
