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.

Johannes Hüppi

The women in Johannes Hüppi’s paintings are representations of femininity, which have all sprung from one fundamental dream, even if their features and traits are variable like the love stories given expression to in the works of the artist. His pictorial language, oscillating between highly subjective and coolly detached and permeated by a cinematic aesthetic, takes the viewer on an intimate journey through landscapes and interiors, the realms of everyday life and the regions of dreams, where his female protagonists are waiting and walking, resting and abandoning themselves to the power of love. The romantic realist Hüppi leaves the further elaboration of his stories to the imagination of the audience, which in this manner also becomes included in his art.
