13 ½ Lives of Captain Bluebear
A Scenography Concept
One day the bluebear finds himself drifting in a small nutshell on the sea – suddenly and apparently without a birth. From then on his adventurous journey across the continent of Zamonia begins. Walter Moers, the author of the book, slips into the role of Captain Bluebear and tells in his own words the Captain’s exciting experiences and the stories around Zamonia.
The concept of the exhibition is based on the journey which the Bluebear experiences and intends to bring the visitor as close as possible to the stories. The map of the continent on which the stories take place serves as the basis. During the journey through the various lives of Captain Bluebear – and thus through the exhibition – importance is placed on the physical exertion, the appropriate knowledge and the psychological impressions that the bear experiences in his life so far.
