Sentenced to 42 days of quarantine, Xavier de Maistre in 1790 begins his Voyage autour de ma chambre. He uses the limitations imposed on his physical freedom of movement and the time thus gained for contemplative expeditions into the vast interiors of his soul, while not far from his comfortable enclosure the revolutionaries are working to abolish that very interiority. From his exile in Savoy, again in privileged surroundings, de Maistre publishes his travelogue in 1794, establishing the genre of “armchair literature.”

Three versions of this genre—de Maistre’s Voyage, Guillaume Dustan’s erotic autofiction Dans ma chambre (1996), and Ernst Jünger’s essay Der Waldgang (1951)—are explored by three performers within an installation.

With Joscha Baltha (Ernst Jünger), Antoine Caxape (Xavier de Maistre), Elena Wolff (Guillaume Dustan) und Nick Romeo Reimann (secretarius/serviteur/slave).
