For its 15th exhibition within the framework of the Hors-les-murs programme of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the Espace Louis Vuitton München presents The Krazy House by Rineke Dijkstra. Created in 2009, Dijkstra’s video installation continues her visual explorations into adolescence. For this piece, the artist asked five young people to dance to their favourite music in a special studio set up on the floor of a Liverpool nightclub. Engulfed in the dim, hushed, blueish environment, the dancers move before a plain white background, each lost in their own image. The artist has reimagined the display of the installation specifically for Espace Louis Vuitton München, shedding new light on this seminal artwork.
