The book Rimini Protokoll: Staat 1–4. Phänomene der Postdemokratie presents the four theater productions State 1–4 (Top Secret International, Society under Construction, Dreaming Collectives. Tapping Sheep and Davos State of the World ) and shows interactive, staged results of a journey exploring the margins of the democratically legitimized state. Journal entries and snapshots give insights into the production process. Essays from the viewpoints of sociology, philosophy, media science, and politics (by Lukas Bärfuss, Timon Beyes, Matthias Fuchs, Gabriela Muri Koller, and others) provide the context, while performance photos from unusual perspectives document the productions’ unique ways of interacting with the audience.
