Starting June 9th there will be excitement and prayers, tears and shouts of jubilation, fist fights and dancing, racist jibes and anti-racist agitation: The World Cup inflames the passions of millions. The O.K Center for Contemporary Art traces the enormous emotional impact of fandom and positions art, film, documentation, the self-aestheticization of fans and fan commerce in a highly charged relationship.

Youll never walk alone – the exhibition named after the legendary battle hymn from Liverpool additionally seeks to reconstruct changes in the concept of fans through a reflection on the space of the stadium: from the everyday cultural rituals of the crowd, through hooligan branding and all the way to domestication in the “disneyfied” and rigidly monitored entertainment arenas of the present.
