The Judicial Murder of Jakob Mohr is a theatrical collage presenting to the audience the case of the psychiatric patient and artist Jakob Mohr. Mohr suffered from the delusion that his behaviour was controlled by his doctor by means of a mysterious machine. The scene of Mohr’s drawing Justiz Mord, which depicts Mohr as defendant, the doctor, the influencing machine and the court, is used as the setting of an unusual assembly or conference in which Mohr is presented as an artist, patient and criminal and in which not only Mohr’s visions, but also scenes and figures from works by other Art Brut artists claim their right to existence.
