Image campaign by Christian Jankowski

The campaign for the 2018/19 season is built around an idea by conceptual artist Christian Jankowski. His work is launching a series in which, throughout the coming seasons, visual artists will engage with the Schaubühne. Entitled »We are innocent when we sleep« and inspired by the countless pictures of »sleeping pranks« on the internet, Jankowski has had actors from the ensemble paint and »stage« their colleagues while they were asleep.
