“Even when you know something, there’s always something more that you don’t know” – Ingo Schulz on art and life


Streaming from Theater am Tanzbrunnen

Three stories about art, life and middle-class society with its curious rituals. After his acclaimed novel, “The Righteous Murderers”, the award-winning and shrewd Ingo Schulze presents Tasso in the Madhouse, a collection of short stories that are both surprising and thrilling. A dissident author flees from the public eye in order to save his life. In the art exhibit “The German Device”, he finds a pattern that can interpret the modern age. “Even when you know something, there’s always something more that you don’t know.” With this statement, a Swiss publisher finds a moment of rare clarity when faced with a great work of art. And Grützke the painter joyfully holds court in a Berlin hospice ... Three stories: tragic and comic, unfathomable and cheery. When life brilliantly throws us off track, art gets us back on course. Or is it the other way round? Host: Anja Backhaus
