Drawn from their video project The Night Epi$ode, the members of My Barbarian portray “nightmare” curators (literally, curators of nightmares), satirizing the processes of inclusion and marginalization that artists face, in a theatrical, horror-show debate. The collective reflects on the hysterical public discourse and private insecurities amplified by the recession through hair-raising, brain-teasing song and dance routines.
In conjunction with the exhibition Hammer Projects: My Barbarian.
