Bertolt Brecht’s play »Die Maßnahme« (The Measures Taken/The Decision) premiered in 1930, with Heiner Müller’s response, »Mauser«, following 46 years later. After a similar interval, the Frankfurter Hauptschule collective has now responded to these two didactic dramas: Maßnahme – Mauser – Motor.
Building on a discussion series, techniques developed by Brecht and Müller are used to explore the question of where we stand today: modernity, postmodernity, acceleration, knowledge society, fake news, contemporary art, reality TV, climate emergency, the end?
