"No Fist F***ing" For Matthew Barney in Basel
Artforum.com's review of Il Tempo Postino in Basel notes, "Some were delighted that Matthew Barney didn’t reproduce the fist-fucking scene that caused such a controversy for the British [during Il Tempo Postino's initial run at the Manchester Opera House], while others thought the work had been better with it. (This time, at the end of Barney’s contribution there was only a concert in the lobby performed with a score by Jonathan Bepler.)"
We're waiting for more reviews and photographs to surface...
