• Tempelhof Summer Festival

This website documents an essential part of my work since the 1990s in various nations and contexts as a director of theatre and opera, a cultural advisor, filmmaker, writer and curator.

The website forges connections between seemingly unrelated topics and spaces. It ranges, for example, from the life of a student in the Soviet Union of the 1980s to a social experiment on a fictitious island; from the the invention of the first vaccine against Covid-19 to the gold rush in Dubai; from overtone singing in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert to a ghostly interlude in the reality of North Korea.

The website presents the work in three categories of time. They are embodied in the
Past (Archive), the Present and the Future (Magazine).
