ASS.DEATH.DICKS (read: aesthetics)
directed by Horacy Muszyński, Poland 2019
Horacy Muszyński’s film series, ASS.DEATH.DICKS (read: aesthetics), tells the story of six young artists invited to work on an exhibition. It is supposed to be their first major project, and the launch of their artistic careers. However, due to creative-block frustration, envy, or ruthless ambition, the young artists start killing each other, turning the gallery white-cube into a bloodbath. According to Muszyński, nowadays rivalry is not only young artists’ main motivation, but also society’s drive at large. Brutal and bloody, ASS.DEATH.DICKS (read: aesthetics) exposes egocentrism and a will to win at all costs. First episode of the series was created at the U–jazdowski Project Room.
