het houten ezeltje


Benjamin Verdonck, Toneelhuis

A playful guide to the winding track between studio and stage, including stories, photos, films, a little theatre in a box, a cat and music.

written in big letters
on bertolt brecht’s desk
was the phrase
the truth is concrete
at the corner of his desk
stood a little wooden donkey
with a sign around its neck
and even I must be able to
understand it
does such a thing as truth exist
something undeniable
something for which I will fight
for which I will make art

What initially was meant to be a lecture in response to the publication of even i must understand it, Benjamin Verdonck’s new book, turned into a new piece called The little wooden donkey. 


All artists are alike
they dream of doing something
that's more social,
more collaborative
and more real
than art.

- Dan Graham
