    Rote Flora / Schulterblatt

Christoph Faulhaber’s artistic interventions make transparent the facades of reality. In 2013, the Summerfestival co-produced his feature film, JEDES BILD IST EIN LEERES BILD an autobiographical art film mirrored through the world of a video game. In June of this year, Faulhaber encases the Rote Flora, located on Hamburg’s Schulterblatt, with a façade made of scaffolding. Underneath it, a solidarity initiative will be renovating the real façade of the building until August. The building was occupied in the 1980s, when a theater dedicated to musicals was supposed to be erected there. On the occasion of the renovation, Faulhaber is staging “The Phantom of the Opera” as a wake-up call, a deterrent, a tragedy, an ironic exaggeration, in defiance, with a sense of ridicule, against the climate of threat, the boogeyman, as public theater for all, free, outside and loud – until the chandelier puts an end to the play and the fake façade breaks in on itself.
