In the void

‚IN THE VOID‘ PORTRAITS FROM CUBA. After Fidel Castro’s death, the gap between ideological aspirations and reality has widened even further. The newly won freedom with access to the Internet and the new smartphones lies like a buffer between youth and reality, reality seems to be disappearing in it. Young people experience a loss, an emptiness without being able to say what constitutes this loss. They are trapped in a void, moving between socialism and capitalism, decay and glamour, rebellious colours and melancholy interiors, and look towards an uncertain future.

we are innocent when we sleep

The campaign for the 2018/19 season follows an idea by conceptual artist Christian Jankowski. Under the title „We are innocent when we sleep“, Jankowski had actresses and actors from the ensemble staging each other in their sleep, based on pictures of „sleeping pranks“ (pranks with fallen asleep) as they circulate on the Internet.
As is usual with such pranks, sleepers do not know for sure in which way, by whom and by how many they were altered. Photographed by Joerg Reichardt the „sleeping pranks“ show the ensemble in an unusual and sometimes irritating way, changing between opposites such as excess/calculus, trust/being at the mercy, inside/outside, schadenfreude/pity, human/object.
