Exhibition: Oct. 28, 2022 to April 29, 2023


All just theater? Of paper dolls, marionette stages and living room operas

The upcoming exhibition "All just theater?" at Haus Appenzell will focus on miniature theaters of various styles, which nevertheless have one thing in common: a great love of acting and attention to detail.

On display are a private collection of historical paper theaters from Europe, a 19th century marionette stage with extraordinary technical equipment for its time, created by the Tobler brothers from Appenzell, who were based in Munich, as well as the opera scenes created with the greatest care by the decorator Bernhard Vogelsanger (1920–1995), who ran what was probably the world's smallest opera house in his cooperative apartment in Zurich-Schwamendingen for almost 50 years.

28th October 2022 – 29th April 2023, opened Wed–Fri 1pm–5pm and Sat 11am–5pm.
