Henrik Ibsen‘s play "An Enemy of the People“, about an infested health spa, becomes a contemporary teaching play about the erosion of the democratic discourse of the 21th century: “Volksverräter!!“. By replacing "public enemy” with the misnomer of the year 2016, we find ourselves in a deployment of so-called "concerned citizens“. If we think further of Ibsen’s interrogation this leads us inevitably to Donald Trump.
