Morgan with Paul Laster and Jonathan Goodman. For an artist who has faced many controversies, there is no better time to understand his work and vision.

There will also be a book signing event on Sunday, September 13, 1pm. The monograph “Hermann Nitsch – The Gesamtkunstwerk of the Orgien Mysterien Theater” is the first reference book on all the disciplines of Hermann Nitsch’s Gesamtkunstwerk.
