The experimental production Hotel Neustadt of the Thalia Theater Halle counts among the major impulses of the Stadtumbau Ost (Urban Redevelopment East competition). On 408 pages, Hotel Neustadt documents the events and experiences around a hotel planned, furnished and run by young adults. It also describes how during the festival the works of 18 international artists and theater groups came to life in the abandoned multi-story building. The flexible basic layout designed by the Neue Gestaltung structures and organizes the varied topics and bi-lingual texts. Color blocks and pictograms manage to combine the diverse imagery to a both exciting and consistent overview of the event.
