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.


Does the white cube take away the sociopolitical relevance of art and does art given back such relevance in churches? Does the sacred space alter the spiritual message, and how does art with a Buddhist, Hindu, or Islamic background behave in sacred space? These are questions that the Berlin-based curator, author, and art dealer Alexander Ochs addressed in the thirteen-part series of exhibitions SEIN.ANTLITZ.KÖRPER. KIRCHEN ÖFFNEN SICH DER KUNST. Nine churches, one synagogue, and one city square each in Berlin, Jerusalem, and Eisenach an der Wartburg. In this book, numerous images and short essays by curators, art historians, theologians, and journalists shed new light on SEIN.ANTLITZ.KÖRPER.
