Since 2007 we've been engaged in a number of projects about Ludwig Wittgenstein and his writings about mathematics and language.
Günter Heinz developed an interdisciplinary performance for the Dresdner Tage der zeitgenössischen Musik in Dresden-Hellerau in 2007.
In 2008 we realize a radio art composition based on Wittgenstein's thoughts on mathematics.
In 2009 we pursue this theme in improv performances.
