"Been there, done that!"

Teenagers filming dance videos in the art gallery, activists defacing masterpieces with paint, people shuffling past the Mona Lisa in endless lines and photographing themselves hundreds of times. The art museum, once a place of tranquility, concentration, and contemplative engagement with the artwork, has turned into a stage for events and self-presentation.

Amidst the retrospective of a traditional museum visit, evolving cultural spaces, and media exploitation, how do we encounter art and what does it mean to us today?

In this experimental theater evening blending art exhibition and dance performance, humans and sculptures are drawn into a shared choreography that poses the question: Do we actually see what is in front of us? Or is it always just about ourselves? "Been there, done that!" places theater creators in an interdisciplinary expressive process and explores, in a fictional exhibition space, a theatrical form between museum visit, dance, and TikTok video.

This project is a collaboration between the Oldenburg artist Lars Unger and the theater k of the Kulturetage Oldenburg.
