In "Herbert" Mark Christoph Klee examines the biography of his gay great-granduncle (1924 - 2012). With historical facts about the homophobic history of West Germany, queer music from the 50s and 60s and archive material from his family, he draws parallels between his life as a homosexual man today and Herbert's back then. "Herbert" is not a completed performance but an ongoing research project.

 

Thanks to the ATLAS scholarship at the IMPULSTANZ Festival in Vienna, Klee was able to present a first version of this lecture-performance to an international audience. The project was accompanied by the mentors Angelique Willkie and Guy Cools.
