In a collage of photographs and texts, original accounts and documents, which are predominantly from the archives of the Akademie der Künste, this publication chronicles the joint theatre work of B.K. Tragelehn and Heiner Müller. At the same time it is a testament to two men of the theatre whose friendship went beyond their artistic collaboration. It is published on the 80th birthday of the director, poet and translator B.K. Tragelehn, who gave his archive to the Academy in 2013. It includes a catalogue of works.
