With "Der Lindberghflug" and the "Badener Lehrstück vom Einverständnis", Bertolt Brecht, together with Kurt Weill and Paul Hindemith, called for the active participation of the audience in the work of art almost 100 years ago – as a collective production. The two Brecht plays contrast the hope for emancipation through technology with its deadly effect if society does not change. In actualized terms, this means: the (climate-damaging) aeroplane is able to cross the sea, but the refugees drown because "man does not help man." Therefore, Brecht’s audience should not only be spectators, but should take action themselves. Or does it become a compulsion to participate in times of social media? Free jazz or freedom through discipline? An experiment with an open outcome.
