The installation of 30 replicas of the Brockhaus Encyclopedia – each of them 3.40 m high – placed in a round formation was a tribute to the timeless validity of the knowledge in the encyclopedias of Brockhaus. The circle of enormous books could be entered from all sides. In addition, a permanent sound performance could be heard from each of the different volumes: the knowledge of the world became audible. For the unveiling of the installation, a phonetic opera for 30 + 1 voices was composed and performed, with the choir standing high above the audience in the Brockhaus-replicas, and the soloist in the middle of the circle.
