In classical music, interpreting a piece means rendering it true to the composer's notation. In deliberate contrast to this, Raphael Sbrzesny takes the position of an "emancipated interpreter" in his artistic work, which links musical theatre, visual art, installation, and theory. It is an arena for appropriating history and turning it into his own story. In this book, Sbrzesny organises his work under the signifiers of doctor, soldier, twerp, poet, king, son, and Sophie, and connects them with his current projects. His work incorporates the media of video, sculpture, photography, and performance.
