‘Bauprobe Beethoven’ (Beethoven – a scenographic mock-up) places the commemoration of Beethoven in a larger context. Post-war German history is written into the building itself – a history of rebirth, glory and affluence, but also of neglect, strife and loss of meaning.
Rimini Protokoll’s trademark is their use of amateur actors, so-called ‘experts in everyday life’. Their current project likewise involves people whose work and lives are closely connected with Beethoven Hall. ‘Bauprobe Beethoven’ thus breathes life into the Hall – prematurely – and perhaps addresses Beethoven as a ‘permanent construction site’, a figure constantly slipping out of our grasp.
The event takes place in accordance with the corona protection measures then in force. Visitors are guided around the construction site in small groups (maximum 15 people).
