“Querelle” – a group exhibition with Catherine Lorent of the corresponding novel (1947) and film (1982). Burkhard Driest first encountered the author and poet Jean Genet during his imprisonment in 1965 when he read the novel Querelle. Thereupon Driest met Genet in 1979 in Paris. In 1982 Driest filmed (production and script) under the direction of Rainer Werner Fassbinder the novel Querelle in which Driest became acquainted with Andy Warhol who designed the movie poster. Driest received a number of photographs from Warhol with which he began sketching. The product of his work is presented in this exhibition for the first time.
