The change can be seen, among other things, in the graphic redesign of the foyer of the Kammerspiele. Where people meet before, after and during performances, the audience has been surrounded by the graphic intervention “The Politics of Staging” since last year, which consists of depictions of various people and groups of people in different scenes of city events.
