Mass Hypnosis, the Devilstone’s Interactive Stage for Arts: Exhibitions, Performances, Worshops
Each year, the patron of all weird arts at Devilstone Mass Hypnosis hosts exhibitions of various artists and holds a number of workshops, performances, and artistic installations. This colourful zone invites everyone who’s feeling inspired and in search of means of self-expression or simply wishes to sate a hunger for visual aestheticism.
The exposition exhibits are often unpopular, obscure, awkward, rebellious, erotic or simply surprising – everything that is slightly uncomfortable but nonetheless aesthetically pleasing and alluring. Additional activities in the Mass Hypnosis’s zone include live performances by artists of numerous mediums and creative workshops.
The topic for this year is FORBIDDEN! Paint yourself from head to toe in the body painting workshops, or simply put on some corpsepaint. Create your own artistic masterpiece or just wander around through the imaginations of others and get inspired.
The featured artists in the FORBIDDEN! Mass Hypnosis are as follows:
Motion performance / improvisation. Uncomfortable and painful. Migraine.
