The work of Than Hussein Clark draws from multiple sources and offers an unusually eclectic appearance.

The work’s influences range from theatre, fashion, crafts, literature or architecture to queer themes and issues about the conditions of artistic production and authenticity. His prop-like objects, set-design installations, and theatre-inspired performances initially yield an exuberant abundance of associations. However, examined more closely, it becomes evident that even the smallest detail plays a clearly defined role, and all the parts in their opulent totality interact with each other in a meaningful and precise manner.

For his project The Director’s Theatre Writer’s Theatre in Bremen, Clark folds together the recent history of the city with his own biography and the Theatrical Novel of Soviet writer Mikhail Bulgakov to develop an interdisciplinary project in several parts that finds expression in different formats and different locations simultaneously.
