They whisper, they murmur…
The Life and Works of Werner Schreib
with Rozemin Keshvani
Werner Schreib was an important rising star in the post-war German art scene. He is best known to London audiences for his participation in the 1966 Destruction in Arts Symposium where he created several notorious pyrotechnic performances condemning the Allied involvement in the Vietnam War. His practice was outward-looking, collaborative and prolific, spanning painting, printmaking, performance, poetry and public sculpture, but his contributions were prematurely cut short when he sadly died in a fatal collision with a lorry on the autobahn at the age of 44.
Laure Genillard invites you to a film screening and discussion with the curator on the controversial life and practice of Werner Schreib to coincide with Frieze London 2016 West End Night.
