  • Señoras&Señores: Wolfgang Mayer – The Flesh is the Zombie Talk
  • Abrimos las puertas de un nuevo Señoras&Señores que contará con la charla del artista Wolfgang Mayer (miembro de Discoteca Flaming Star), aprovechando su actual estancia en Rampa.


    “The Flesh is the Zombie Talk”:

    “I will talk for about 50 minutes and show you some images. I will start with a poem and end with a video. Inbetween I will elaborate on topics like the relation of Me and We, Ernst Kantorowicz doctrine of The King’s Two Bodies, Eric Santners concept of the Flesh and finally adding to these theories, as my proposal, the Zombies of Georg Romero (1968-2009 so far) and their successors within the TV-series The Walking Dead (2010-now)”
