The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Schall und Rauch – eine Revue in Bildern (4.22.20176.11.2017) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.

This publication documents for the exhibition newly conceived and site-specific works by Stephan Dillemuth, hand in hand with some older works from the 1980s. In the exhibition, the artist created a new way of presenting his oeuvre, setting up site-specific scenes that have a certain theatricality, as well as an alluring effect. Questions about the role of the artist in society and the artistic means employed in his practice are put up for debate. For Dillemuth, art has the potential not only to reflect upon social changes, but to trigger them as well.
