LaLa Land Parody Paradise

Rachel Harrison on Paul McCarthy:

Paul McCarthy: LaLa Land Parody Paradise – 2005 (Performance views Haus der Kunst, Munich)

“ The building that now serves as the Haus der Kunst had been commissioned by Hitler to showcase the art he approved. It opened in 1937 with ceremonial Bavarian infantrymen marching in front of the museum. Here at McCarthy’s opening, all things became conflated: I was inside a sculpture that was a set of a set, in a building that itself was built as a stage. The cameras were rolling, the ersatz army was drunk, and who, if anyone, were they here to protect? Were the soldiers or cameras protecting the present?“
