ENDZEIT INDUSTRY - Volkan T error bei Rimini Protokoll "Adolf Hitler: Mein Kampf, Band 1 & 2"


music - performance - art

Rimini Protokoll sets out on the trail of Adolf Hitler's inflammatory writings and attempts to fathom an explanation for the enduring myth of "Mein Kampf". Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" ("My Struggle") was first published in 1925/26, and by the end of WWII millions of copies were in circulation. For decades, the propagandistic writings have been hulled in the aura of "a forbidden book", and thus continue to fascinate today. Currently held by the State of Bavaria, the book’s copyright will expire at the end of 2015.

The debate as to whether the book should be republished – and if so, how – is in full swing, despite the fact that it is available from antiquarian dealers and on the internet, not to mention its steady sales in a number of countries. What would a symbolic ban prevent? What lies at the root of the myth of "Mein Kampf"? What does it say in the book, anyway? Is it dangerous? In their latest production, theatre producers Helgard Haug and Daniel Wetzel search for answers. From university "poison cupboards", where classified literature is kept under lock and key, to German attics and flea markets abroad, they have followed the trail of a book which still retains its historical-politically explosive nature today.
