Olaf Nicolai’s conception has turned the main steps of the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich into a stage, on which the visitors find themselves transformed into part of the display.
Vocal compositions by internationally renowned composers, all written in 2011, reflect on the current political and cultural climate, creating together a kind of “review” of the year.
The a cappella works have been performed on the main steps over 12 Sundays during the year.
