But our peep shows are now empty. Only the very basic questions linger on: How about a little less hate? A little less hostility? A little less paranoia, propaganda, pornography? Who is the saddest person?
The theatre-maker and visual artist Alexander Giesche, who has been artist in residence at the Kammerspiele for the past two seasons with his group GiescheAnd, has developed a curiosity cabinet of self-reflection together with the musician Ludwig Abraham. Come in. And stay.
