The Schaubühne in Berlin is one of the leading German-language theaters. Six internationally acclaimed photographers of our time occupied themselves artistically with the Schaubühne’s ensemble of actors.

Daniel Spoerri

Eaten by...
Daniel Spoerri was one of the artists who signed the Nouveau Réalisme manifesto in Paris 1960; he also opened “Restaurant Spoerri” in Düsseldorf in 1968, introducing his concept of “Eat Art”, which dealt with an issue from everyday life – food, its creation and its decay. Even today, he is still known for the Eat Art concepts he created from 1959 to 1965 in a rented room in Hotel Carcassonne in Paris and which he developed in connection with his famous “trap pictures” and “tableaux-pièges”.
This publication presents the artist’s replica of the Paris room and a great number of original trap pictures from 1978 to 1992, current assemblages of the artist’s “one-day boxes” and life-size bronzes and sculptures.
