Stinking Dawn - a movie by Liam Gillick and Gelitin, examines the limits of human tolerance in the face of oppression, political crisis and excessive self-delusion, where the boundaries between body and world dissolve in a delirious and darkly funny mirror image of civilization itself.

In 2019, Liam Gillick and Gelitin took over the Kunsthalle Wien and turned it into a film set composed of massive polystyrene blocks, stacked into monumental structures – complete with a mausoleum and nightclub. The resulting movie is a radical, improvised collective project that tells the story of four narcissists battling their own desires. Stinking Dawn creates a miniature civilization with a baroque corporeality. It is a fight between autonomy and the rise of the new right; freedom and repression. ‘Stinking Dawn’ is darkly humorous, transgressive and political. An unruly, cinematic work in its own right – and a cinematic experience unlike any other.
