Hannes Broecker is a brilliant artist. How can I tell? Because of his 'Drink Away The Art' installation recently exhibited in Dresden, Germany.
Broecker has aroused our sense of taste (not to mention eliminated the need of elbowing our way to the bar) by hanging flat, glass containers with a variety of cocktails in the exhibition space. As the night progressed, the levels of the multi-colored infusions diminished. By the end of the event, the art, itself, ran dry, and empty drinking glasses were returned to where they were originally placed.
I was lucky enough to be there on opening night, and let me tell you -- it was awesome! I got so shit-faced I wandered into the ancient Egypt exhibit and was caught dry humping a mummy. Hey, I prefer my lovers mature.
Two more pictures after the pour.
