Wu Tsang (b. 1982) is an artist, performer, and filmmaker based in Los Angeles (USA). His multimedia-oriented oeuvre focuses on narratives that construct identity and the self in relation to others. In particular, Tsang is interested in the socio-political dimensions of communities.

With his excessive agglomerations of materials and unconventional narrations, Christoph Schlingensief (1960–2010) creates flowing transitions between art genres. To wrap up the threepart collection presentation on excesses in form and motif within contemporary art, his comprehensive work Kaprow City (2006/ 2007) will be exhibited.
