English: György Ligeti’s Requiem (1965) is a work filled with anger and grief. Kornél Mundruczó places the theme of repetition at the centre of his analysis. We experience the work in three periods and three forms: an encounter with horror takes place in the past, a traumatized silence occupies the present while in the future we sense a world in which artificial intelligence – apparently innocently – no longer leaves any scope for the notion of memory or commemoration.

Insgesamt ist "Evolution" eine Aufführung, wie sie wohl nur ein Festival wie die Ruhrtriennale zeigen kann. Gewaltig, erschütternd, groß.
