A new car isn’t designed on the conveyor belt but in the laboratory – and art is no different. — As a composer, director and artistic director, Heiner Goebbels suspends customary forms of experience. His programmes and works turn performances into exhibitions, museums into stages and enable audiences to encounter art impartially and without any false respect. With an awareness of place, a sense of time and in intimate dialogue with artists and spaces, he has transformed the Ruhrtriennale into a laboratory for theatre, dance, performance and the visual arts: music becomes visible, space audible and text tangible in an elegantly simple way.  

What happened, what is left, what now?  Heiner Goebbels and journalist and author Holger Noltze gauge the extensive field between art and society, in which production, presentation and aesthetic experience are contingent upon each other and become the subject.
