Haus der Kunst is pleased to present the world premier of "Matthew  Barney: River of Fundament," an exhibition that brings together for the first time the entire ensemble of Matthew  Barney’s multi-part River of Fundament project.

Since 2007, artist Matthew Barney has been developing "River of Fundament" in collaboration with the composer Jonathan Bepler. The Gesamtkunstwerk is inspired by American author Norman Mailer and his sprawling, controversial novel "Ancient Evenings", published in 1983.

The project comprises the epic-length symphonic film "River of Fundament", three performances, 14 large-scale sculptures weighing up to 25 tons, drawings, photographs, storyboards, and vitrines. In its entirety, the project is one of the artist's most complex and ambitious works to date.
