In the cellar spaces in the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, located at the address Arcisstrasse 12, the world premiere of "Traces" examines the theme of the Munich Biennale 2022 "Good Friends" in regards to the theme's ambiguity and ambivalence.
A labyrinthine system of passageways leads through the machine rooms and decadent storage and supply rooms of the former "Führerbau," "The Führer's Building." Originally built to protect people's lives, the air raid shelter was converted into a storage space for hundreds of art works at the end of the Second World War under the "Sonderauftrag Linz" ("Special Mission Linz") organization. While the politically aligned partners Mussolini, Chamberlain, Daladier, and Hitler on the occasion of the Munich Agreement were served in the fireplace salon on the first floor venison, wine, and cordials via a modern, elaborate cooling system, the people below them were experiencing violence in the passageways, the echoes of which still resound today in the spaces in the cellar.
The music theater tour of the world premiere of "Traces" follows striking paths that suggest the past, and it blazes new trails; the stability of these trails is permanently undercut by intersections, dead ends, and changes in direction. In the labyrinth this seemingly helping, friendly, and protective gesture from a system that promises people affiliation, prosperity, and advancement turns out to be the perfidious maneuver of a terrible, inhuman regime.
