Alexander Hacke & Danielle de Picciotto release DVD/CD

The internationally renown artist couple De Picciotto / Hacke are releasing a beautiful new DVD/CD package set: 'The Ship Of Fools' a "making of" documentary of their new live show.

These multi talented icons have been working unconventionally for years  – ever involved in discovering new ways of presenting avant-garde ideas or interaction among cultures and generations. With the performance 'The Ship Of Fools' it was their objective to explicate the novel by Sebastian Brant in a very contemporary spirit – emphasizing that medieval themes are astonishingly up to date – the interaction among text, music and video represents a "state-of-the–art" approach to classic literature, traditional and electronic music, art and film.

The DVD/CD is being released on the 20th of June 2008  by POTOMAK, the record label of Einstürzende Neubauten and distributed by Indigo.

A DVD/CD Release party will take place on the 2nd of June in Berlin at the Eschschloraque:

Rosenthaler Str. 39 – 2nd back alley
10178 Berlin - Mitte

Doors open at 9:30 pm – the movie will be shown outside on the big screen at 10:00pm.

The artists Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke will perform three pieces of the show live after the screening and then continue to celebrate their release and wedding anniversary alternatively DJing.
