™6.6]Souvereign uncertainty_POLITICS is concerning with studies which show that it is better for politicians to make election programmes more open. In this way, the range for interpretations can be extended and a larger electorate can be reached. Many parties have taken advantage of this analysis and advertise with simple slogans. The professor of politics Karl-Rudolf Korte defined this phaenomena with "souvereign uncertainty". This miniature uses material from the 2017 Bundestag election and arranges it for choir and solo voices. In juxtaposition, counterpoint and contrast, the agitated polyphony of political electoral debates and the intensive placement of so-called key themes are represented by musical principles.

The half-hour meditation on Heisenberg's theses is a one-man show in which actor Fabian Ringel has to deliver a breathless tour de force under high pressure. He is supported by the challenging video installation by Jens Standke.

In this way, the evening's visitors take a seat on beanbags in which they let themselves fall and can direct their gaze to the ceiling covered with semi-transparent canvas, on which the physical explanations are illustrated with abstract sequences of images. Driven by pulsating minimalist electroscores, particles and electrons represented as white dots form and condense into ever new formations. Even if physicists are not necessarily able to speak out enlightened when Heisenberg's fuzziness or Schrödinger's cat is spoken of next time, a hunch remains that the so-called reality is perhaps not as concrete and factual as it seemed a moment ago. Is perception merely the human attempt to create patterns and make sense in order to distract oneself from the prospect of incoherent chaos? (Robert Cherkowski in Choices 11/17)

text excerpt

Germany, Germany first

the only one in our world

German women, German beer

German songs and loyality

unity, justice, freedom

will be afterwards

The fact that Germany is more or less doing well does not mean that it always stands at its best. Germany as a democratic country, in which you can live relatively freely and well, cuts a pretty good figure in today's world.
