Unique opportunity to see Walid Raad perform “Two Drops Per Heartbeat” in his exhibition “Cotton Under My Feet” at the Thyssen-Bornemisza

The IE Community had the unique opportunity of seeing Walid Raad perform “Two Drops Per Heartbeat” in the context of his exhibition Cotton Under My Feet: the result of three years of creative travels by the Lebanese artist which culminate in a series of performances and reveal the complex art-historical hypotheses that articulate this project.

The artist himself acts as a very special guide for this activity, a tour of the galleries entitled Two Drops per Heartbeart which is designed to cast a new and surprising light on the museum. Raad invites visitors to accompany him as he enters into a web of unexpected coincidences in which fiction and reality, space and time and history and fantasy overlap, giving rise to a vertiginous reflection on the legacy of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections and their connections with the history of art.
