Luchezar Boyadjiev






Guiding Agents of Belief (Schadenfreude Guided Tours_03). 2006
Art action

Boyadjiev guides in his performances of the series "Schadenfreude Guided Tours" visitors through exhibitions, where he re-organizes the exhibitions' interconnections, invents interpretations, jokes around and comments what and as he wishes. As this happens mostly after the opening, his artist colleagues are unable to answer back ("Schadenfreude" means 'malicious pleasure' in German). He also stages such a project in Singapore in cooperation with assistants, his "Guiding Agents of Belief", who were trained to guide in Boyadjiev-style through the Biennale.
