On the stage, a cultural mediator explains an exhibition to a small group of visitors. For instance, one of the exhibits is made of debris from the war in Syria – destruction become creation.
This wicked comedy zeroes in on the gray zone between politically engaged art and the exploitation of the suffering of others. All Inclusive is entertaining, unsettling and aesthetic. Many artists – including Julian Hetzel – use war and conflict as raw material for works that aim to challenge their viewers and make them think. At the same time, though, they reap both social and financial benefits from this. The play’s sophisticated scenes play out this painful moral dilemma. Even though the audience doesn’t have to play along, it is necessarily complicit.
