Tim Shaw (London, Bonn): The Birth of Breakdown Clown

On 8 March, our current Artist in Residence Tim Shaw RA (member of the Royal Academy) will present his work project entitled


It is a figure that speaks, that possesses awareness and asks us questions about the understanding of law in a global world, at the interface between humans and machines as a somewhat unsettling sculpture on the move.

Next to the performance itself and the explanation from the artist, voices from art history and cultural science will be heard.

For further information please note the invitation (pdf).

A performance of the “Breakdown Clown” is now available in our media center.

Further, the General-Anzeiger Bonn has released an online article about the project.
