The Lucullan Reading Circle
Written in 1939 as a radio play by the poet and dramatist Bertolt Brecht, The Trial of Lucullus features the Roman general Lucullus facing judgment by a People’s Court in the underworld. Norwegian artist Per-Oskar Leu revisits this lesser-known Brecht work through a participatory performance, offering a contemporary reflection on the artist’s relationship to legal institutions, politics, and ideology.
