Staircase joke, Mr. Eye and the musical clown – Oskar Schlemmer was fascinated by clown logic. His absurd clown performances stand in tense contrast to his rationalistically determined understanding of art. In the situational performance Sahnetorte und Weltfrieden (cream cake and world peace) Benjamin Richter and Cox Ahlers interpret Schlemmer’s clown figures and deconstruct common ways of playing. They appear unexpectedly in the festivities and shake up the audience’s logic and viewing habits.
