Schröpfers’ Coffeehouse

Johann Georg Schröpfer, 1730-74, gathered people in his coffeehouse in Leipzig, lifted the spirits by serving punch and staged a conspiring set, using the laterna magica and smokescreens, on which he projected the pictures of ghosts. A remake of Schröpfers Coffeehouse will be realised by AFTER IMAGE PRODUCTIONS / Vienna.
