When purchasing a share of the Schaubühne, you not only receive a piece of art from Leipzig, but a piece of its culture as well. Our shares are literally artistic bonds: the shares, which are designed by various artists, are limited to 1000 or 250 prints. Five editions have been released so far, with motifs by Thomas Moecker, Verena Landau, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Frank-Heinrich Müller and Thadeusz Tischbein, as well as a special edition designed by Christoph Ruckhäberle.
As shareholder and co-owner you not only actively support the theater and cinema Schaubühne, but have the opportunity to acquire an exclusive art collection of Leipzig artists as well.
The fifth edition combines four motifs – all pictures from photographer Frank-Heinrich Müller – in one 250-piece printing. The photographs are part of a series which was developed in New York in 1996: taken with a large format camera without horizon, frontal and detailed. They remind us of the old Lindenau-Plagwitz, the working- class district with its islands of culture amidst industrial architecture. The art prints are available in a 29,7 x 46,9 cm format with a price of 24 Euros each.
