They are unique in their way of provocatively dealing with themes that are already challenging: Roman Gilz and Gordan Nikolic work primarily on the representation of sexually dominant femininity. As part of the Reeperbahn Festival, the artist duo appropriately opens their new exhibition “The Sound of Burlesque” at the Erotic Art Museum.
Gilz and Nikolic have optically repackaged and portrayed stars of the burlesque scene in clubs, studios and backstage. In the programme accompanying the exhibition, the former guitarist of the rock band Rudolf Rock & die Schocker, Micky Wolf, takes over the sceptre, frees Tarantino sound from its tight corset – and burlesque stars drop their covers.
Definitely something for fans of live burlesque rock, if the genre already exists. If not: with “The Sound of Burlesque” at the latest, this genre has become indispensable. Also not for Biedermänner and – women.
