Myths and legends are often instrumentalized by national conservative movements for the purpose of power. The series Myths of Reality brings these stories back - with queer and cultural critical readings. The German-Swedish performance duo White on White explores an inexistent, phantasmatic nation-state: »Tyskland«. The Scandinavian (magic) word for Germany offers an opening of the projections of the north to the south: In the perspective of TYSKLAND, Germany is a queer garden, where Joseph Beuys - embodied in a golden leaf rabbit - and Rosa Luxembourg kiss the good night, while Theodor and Max exercise a strict regime - one of Critical Theory, Anti-Nationalism and Absolute Liberty of the Arts.
