text | zeichen | setzen
a research series
text|zeichen|setzen [text|sign|setting] is a research project by das Schaufenster, in which the principle of complicity is explored through three different performative instruments – the text, the sign and the setting. The starting point is the question of the extent to which it can be conceived of as a model of society. Complicity is a term in criminal law through which a crime is defined by common purpose, planning and execution. It describes a temporary, targeted and self-determined way of working as a fluid formation of alternating players. The practice of how we work in the free theatre scene is to be understood in exactly the same way. What distinguishes these methods? What are their advantages? And how can they be understood as models of coexistence?
