Measure for Measure, Zadek / Minks
I wrote this paper during winter semester 2013-14, M.A. Theatre Studies, Free University of Berlin: “Wilfried Minks and the influence of modern art in his work during his time in Stadttheater Bremen”.
A research in the Franz Gauker Collection (Archives of the Art Academy in Berlin) led me to explore the influence of the british and american artists and art movements of modernism, abstract expressionism and pop art in the iconography and the designs of Wilfried Minks, taking examples from his stage designs in plays, i.e. Measure for Measure (director: Peter Zadek), Torquato Tasso (director: Peter Stein) and Bremer Freiheit (eng. Liberty in Bremen, director: Reiner Werner Fassbinder).
