Based on an idea by Schlingensief himself, it pays homage to Matthew Barney (The Cremaster Cycle) and the Viennese “actionist” Otto Mühl (Art and Revolution). As in his previous work “Atta Atta” (Volksbühne Berlin, 2003) and in the following “Attabambi Pornoland” (Schauspielhaus Zürich, 2004), Schlingensief thematizes in “Bambiland” the breakout of artistic forms of expression from their traditional boundaries. For Schlingensief, therefore, the costume was more than an “outfit”; it was a much-cited synonym for his artistic syncretism, to which he adhered in later productions as well.
