All Inclusive is a performance about the aestheticization of violence. Julian Hetzel examines the paradoxical principle of “creation through destruction” and explores the explosive force of image wars.
While the destruction of monuments and iconic images, as we know from Iraq and Syria, have become tools of strategic warfare, the museum became an extension of the battlefield. Here the aestheticization of violence is made visible and turned into products. What if the souvenirs are actually trophies?
All Inclusive juxtaposes art and war, tourists and refugees, reality and imagination in a journey through a temporary exhibition space. The audience is invited to watch a visit through a museum where reality strikes back.
Julian Hetzel (Germany, 1981) studied visual communication at the Bauhaus University Weimar (2008) before continuing his studies on the master’s programme at DasArts. While still studying, he stood out with the hotly debated performance The Benefactor (2011). In the autumn of 2017, he received the VSCD Mime Award for The Automated Sniper (Frascati Producties).
His work is well thought-out, provocative, socially committed and accessible and operates at the intersection of theatre, performance, media, music and visual art.
