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.

Sebastian Jung: Neue Heimat Paradies

Eine künstlerische Recherche über Geflüchtete, Angekommene und immer schon Dagewesene
Sebastian Jung’s publication is dedicated to the current theme of fleeing in an unusual way. It first and foremost takes a self-reflective look at what has always existed. It concerns narcissism, the fears, desires, and future projections of us locals, which intersect with the experiences of horrifying violence, but also desires and future projections of those who have fled. What links the two is the focus: the modern Western world’s promise of salvation. In a prologue and four acts, the artist presents heterogeneous individual works that are self-contained, but also interlinked in an overarching narrative arc, in a striking range of media and design processes—drawings, inks, watercolors, photos, and texts. The book produces a constant movement between various actors, perspectives, and problem areas. With his radically subjective approach, Sebastian Jung draws attention to the precariousness of existence in our Western “paradise.”

Please notice: The book will be published in Ocober 2016. You can already pre-order it.
