A magical shiny red container made of mouth-blown glass is stopping by the Schaustelle for some weeks. It is a temporary architecture, which provides room for alternating actions that revolve around the issues of transparency, the colour red and sensual pleasure – a brothel or a blood transfusion station, a sacred space or a place for lectures, a place for wine tasting or other sensual pleasures. The Glashütte Lamberts Waldsassen – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mouth-blown coloured glass – has created this unusual “container” in cooperation with the Berlin artist Sandra Long and designer Nils Fischer (SAIA). Continuing with a centuries-old tradition, the company manufactures flat glass handcrafted in over 5,000 colours and textures. The glass is used around the world for art works, contemporary architeture and historical buildings. Some of the artists who use Lamberts glass are Markus Lüpertz, Johannes Schreiter, Gerhard Richter, Imi Knoebel, Neo Rauch, Olafur Eliasson, Brian Clarke, Guy Kemper and Kiki Smith.
The stage and costume designer Teresa Vergho and theater director and producer Philip Decker developed three different installations and a programme, which will visualize the aspects GLASS, ROOM and RED and make them tangible.
Two actions are to be highlighted, especially as participation is explicitly desired and necessary for their succes.
On Sunday, the 5th of May, we will need a large number of participants for our FLESHMOB actions. The Schaustelle is looking for 50-80 people who would like to invade the overseas container made of mouth-blown glass several times, putting the structure almost to its physical limits. Do you want to join? Please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and PASS IT ON!
On Friday, the 10th of May – the 80th anniversary of book-burning – actors from the Münchner Kammerspiele will be hold readings in the red container. Bring your favorite book and they will read it for you!
