About this exhibition booklet

The exhibition tour provides insight into the correlation between the different parts of the Gesamtkunstwerk "River of Fundament", inspired by American author Norman Mailer and his sprawling, controversial novel "Ancient Evenings". Developed by Matthew Barney in collaboration with the composer Jonathan Bepler since 2007, the project comprises the epic-length symphonic film "River of Fundament", three performances, 14 large-scale sculptures weighing up to 25 tons, drawings, photographs, storyboards, and vitrines.
