hangmen also die

radio play adaptation by michael farin and zeitblom of the film by fritz lang and bertolt brecht .

the composer zeitblom and michael farin bring the transformation of the famous anti-nazi film of 1943 to the ears for this year's picnic: hangmen also die is, as third part of the fritz lang radio play trilogy [after metropolis and m - eine stadt sucht einen mörder], a story which revolves around the assassination of the infamous ss leader reinhard heydrich [the hangman of prague]. however the historical facts are less important here than the moral dimension, that several men - intentionally or unintentionally - are forced to adopt a political position. how far is man ready to go to overcome terror?

this extraordinary radio play can be enjoyed under open skies on the great picnic blanket - this will be the fourth year of the rohkunstbau audio picnic.

anti-city myths & no exotic

an audiovisual performance by and withserhat köksal alias 2/5 bz

after the audio picnic, serhat köksal breaks all boundaries of political correctness with his project 2/5 bz. in his live performances the istanbul based artists mixes traditional music, experimental electronic sounds with tv and b movie recordings that clash against one another in a dadaistic confrontation of pop, orientalism, comic and folklore. in his multimedia performances he works with cultural clichés and explores their effects on the economical and political situation of the individual. in short, serhat köksal uses mass culture in a critical and simultaneously humorous way.
