  •  The Frankfurt photographer Alexander Paul Englert has transformed the book project Traumdiebstähle (2016, published by Edition Faust), which resulted from the collaboration with the award-winning author Silke Scheuermann, into a video installation, which for the first time can be seen from March 18 until April 30, 2017 at the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden. In this special NKVextra a photographic and literary narrative meet each other. Both interweave into a fantastic story about the smooth transition between reality and dream and the escape from everyday life.

    A business trip leads the management consultant and hero of the narrative to the Auberge de Rêve, a hotel somewhere between Bavaria and Hesse, in which guests from all over the world meet. Here he rediscovers a special ability: he can enter the dreams of others and influence them...

    Directed by Stefan Fricke the Hessischer Rundfunk has created a radio drama version of the text by Silke Scheuermann, with the actor Armin Nufer as narrator and the sound islands of the composer Andreas Wagner to the images of Alexander Paul Englert, and can be heard at the Nassau Art Association. The play will also be broadcasted in two parts on the 18th and 25th of September 2017 (11 pm-12 pm) by hr2-kultur.
