CIA has received full support from the Nitsch Foundation and we are truly honoured to be able to bring you Hermann Nitsch's first solo retrospective exhibition in Hong Kong. Born in 1938 in Vienna, Hermann Nitsch was a key member of the original Vienna Aktionism and founder of his Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries, employing art and performance (Aktion) since 1957 to question the existence and true nature of Being, revealing what one experiences where reality is laid bare, when time ceased, words failed and senses triumphed.
“What is art if it's not enhanced life, how does one reach reality if not through the most intensive art?"
- Wieland Schmeid on Hermann Nitsch
