Beate Zschäpe is a symbolic figure for the fascist underground movement, NSU. Her smiles and silence are emblematic of the unrepentant stance towards right-wing extremist acts. In KWISKOTHEKA, Branko Šimić confronts the phenomenon of the NSU with the modern developments of a polarised society, which ideologically wears itself out between a welcoming culture and Pegida. Working with experts, he has developed a quiz catalogue, which outside of the medial context attempts to find substantiated truths or at least pose the right questions. In the first part of KWISOTHEKA 2016 there emerges choreographic wordplay, presenting the topic free of taboos, and in a hard and new light.



In the 1970s, Yugoslavian cult series Kwiskotheka opened up a new kind of question and answer game. More than 40 years later, the TV studio has become a multi-functional installation, a recordable space that poses new questions. The KWISKOTHEKA 2016 is a host set, which takes migrants and their enemies as its topic, in the past, present and future. In the Kwiskotheka 2016, the director and curator of the Krass Festival, Branko Šimić focuses on constructing answers to questions from the refugees coming to Germany and their ideas for the country. Three different productions will be shown in this theatre studio.
