THE BIG BERLIN DICK FESTIVAL
IF YOU HAVE A DICK, IF YOU ARE A DICK, IF YOU LIKE DICKS, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DICKS, IF YOU DESPISE DICKS, IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN A DICK BEFORE, BUT YOU THINK IS TIME TO SEE THEM IN NUMBERS, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DICK-THE BERLIN DICK FESTIVAL IS FOR YOU!!!!
The Dick Festival started as a huge joke and ended up as a very strange and experimental art event which will be repeated soon for the pleasure of all dicks.
The Berlin Dick Festival wishes to become a regular underground event, a platform which welcomes the unwanted, the ones who are brave enough to be funny, the ones who have already lost everything and therefore are free. Good spirited bad taste is not an issue.
A social reflection, an inflated joke, something (not so) serious about the dicks out there who shamelessly walk around and hang it out, day after day. The goal is to create an ironic event which underneath of the ridiculousness and silliness of it, is still able to disturb the fu*k out of the audience, who brings up the courage and curiosity and comes. (in any sense).
This is how shit went down in the first experiment: I used a craigslist ad to find the right kind of crowd to participate, then I put them all under one roof, organised a dick cabaret and a dick crucifixion, on a large dick sculpture with an ejaculation machine, and then we all hoped for the best.
The Big Berlin Dick Festival is my Titanic and I am willing to sink. Deeper than the Berlin underground.
The Festival is currently looking for an open gallery/performance space for its second edition.
The first edition of the Dick Festival took place in Plateau Gallery at Greenhouse Berlin on the 15th and 16th of May 2015.
