Under the title »Die Erfindung des Eigenheims« (The Invention of Home Ownership), the Monster Control District is preparing for a research trip to Swabia.

With an installative setup we want to give insights into the research for our next production at TATWERK: In early 2019, we will travel to Tübingen, the capital of what is perhaps Germany's homeliest region.
As a prelude, we will look in Berlin at coziness, openness, closedness and other stagings of homeliness. Here at home, we look through the windows with which we separate our homes from the outside world, but with which we also let in furtive glimpses of the inside and through which we can view the outside world from within our own four walls.
Our research is dedicated to this never entirely secure relationship, which has found its structural expression in bourgeois spies, blinds, lace curtains and frosted glass panes since the invention of the home.
For even if the window has had digital competition since the 1990s in the form of the webcam and home video, this fundamental insecurity of the dweller from the outside world remains central to the German bourgeoisie.
Later in 2019, the MCD will return to TATWERK with the result of the Swabian journey, a stage performance.
