By Milo Rau

In detail, the “currently most influential director on the continent” (Die ZEIT) reveals the complex social and aesthetic challenges that determine his political-artistic work. Milo Rau demonstrates what it means artistically to trace with the greatest consistency the “far-reaching interior space of capital, its nightmares and hopes, its under- and counter-worlds” and to find an answer to it – for example in the form of his aesthetic model of an artistic “global realism”.

The book is based on Milo Rau’s lectures at the 6th Saarbrücken Poetics Lecture for Drama.
