Igors Gubenko substantiates the seemingly paradoxical thesis that the actions of the Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries by Hermann Nitsch is a demonstration lesson in humanism. Gubenko addresses humanism critique in the existentialism reasoning of Martin Heidegger, conviction of Michel Foucault that man is “a recent invention nearing its end” and the post-humanism aspirations to re-conceptualise man beyond the hierarchies of values characteristic of humanism.
