By-Products of Love On Stage with Werner Schroeter
Besides the rich body of films he directed, Werner Schroeter also created an equally lavish number of theatre and opera productions with the most important ensembles in Germany and Europe. This was indeed the focus of his work in the 1990s especially. Eberhard Kloke, whose Klanginstallation I – IV features in the exhibition, describes Schroeter's passion for music, specifically Beethoven, Wagner and Strauss – and above all Maria Callas. Traute Hoess, an important confidant of Schroeter, knows him from their theatre collaborations, while Rainer Will acted and assisted in Goldflakes (Flocons d'or, 1976) and The Rose King (1984–1986).
