Variously designed stages formed the nexus between art and architecture in the exhibition Theater Objects: A Stage for Architecture and Art. They provided theatrical tableaux in which internationally renowned artists and architects present themselves in the field of interplay between the two disciplines. Josep Lluís Mateo and Christian Kerez, for example, use the stages to reveal their sources of inspiration, whether books or films, which in turn reflects the format of this exhibition of architecture. The book Theater Objects takes up these ideas and develops them in a large number of contributions.
