Cadavre Exquis is a playful occasion open to international artists and their families. In the age of visual piracy, we are turning the hijacking of pictures into one grand painting and drawing performance: At 11 a.m. in the garden of the MEK, six international comic artists will start working on a large mural painting. How it will turn out is entirely up to their collaborative effort and therefore to chance.

Young and old people are invited to draw together on paper and, as the day progresses, their work will grow into a never-ending comic strip. The separate panels are created without knowing the preceding artists’ pieces. The revelation of the work as a whole will thus surely create fun and surprise.
