Die Verhandlung

Frankfurter Innenstadt


We take our seats in the front row. We do not applaud, we watch attentively: we witness everything. Every detail is important, everything can be negotiated, and at some point a verdict will be reached. Will it be in the name of the people? Or perhaps in the name of the audience? How does the law conduct itself? And what role do I play here? In this participatory experimental set-up, the Frankfurt Higher Regional Court becomes the protagonist, a social sculpture, a place of lively debate. Spectators of many ages together assemble a portrait of the court from various personal perspectives. Together with a performer you will visit a court case. Afterwards, your observations will be recorded and become part of an archive of trial observations.
