Norma Jeane starts off with «Der Schlafraum» («The Sleeping Room»): a rescue shelter in the town centre invites passers-by to lie down in public space and share an experience of sleep or repose with other people. The social experiment and the intimate experience show new perspectives of the relationship between a lifestyle based on private property and the general human condition.
