Bruno Schleinstein, alias Bruno S., lived for 23 years in the "mass accommodation of unkindness," as he called the asylums and psychiatric hospitals where he was imprisoned during the Nazi regime, among other things. In 1958 he released himself into freedom. He begins to wander through Berlin's backyards on weekends, where he sings, pictures and interprets moritatas. Through them he finds the words he lacks for the time being to communicate himself and his thoughts. The originality, force and authenticity of his performances arouse the interest of filmmakers and journalists at the end of the 1960s. Six years later, Bruno Schleinstein became world-famous overnight as Werner Herzog's Kaspar Hauser actor. His visual work was not discovered until late, but from then on it was appreciated primarily by fellow artists and found a home in their private collections. Bruno Schleinstein's perennial exploration of themes such as hope, death, morality, visions and dreams has found its way into all his artistic works, in his music, his painting, his texts and his acting.
