Benjamin and Brecht.
Thinking in Extremes Never-Ending Crisis

Theatre Performance

In 1931, Brecht and Benjamin, together with other artists and scholars, planned to publish a journal called Krise und Kritik (Crisis and Criticism). They established a group intended to realise “a far-reaching production accompanied by results” – through collective work. But the project failed. Why? The public is invited to a re-enactment of the recorded conversations. The evening’s actors take the audience on a journey into crisis, which always exists: Does an utopia with open boundaries have to fail? In cooperation with the Brechtfestival Augsburg.

The exhibition "Benjamin and Brecht. Thinking in Extremes" will be open until midnight. At 9 pm, Jule Böttner offers a guided tour.

Further performance on 14 Dec, 7.30 pm.
