Workshop Mauertag

27 Apr 2011 - 20:00

The workshop Mauertag im April is aimed at all those who are curious about the Berlin wall and its metaphors in the world.

As a documentary and illustrative platform it invites us to an open and dynamic debate.

o   What does the wall of Berlin mean ?
o   What place will its memory take in the future globalized world ?
o   Which are the challenges of the wall ?
o   How can it inspire us ?
o   Where is its place between myth and reality, fantasy and denunciation ?
o   How does one distinguish between a frontier and a wall ?
o   How can one understand cultural identity in this peculiar context ? (...)

The workshop consists of four key projects :

Virtuelle Mauer / ReConstructing the wall by the artists collective T+T.
A reconstruction of the Wall of Berlin in 3D.

Former East / Former West a documentary film by Shelly Silver.
A selection of on-the-spot interviews taken in Berlin just after the fall of the communist regime.

La Frontière intérieure

A collection of contemporary accounts on the Iron Curtain.

Extracción an experimental short film by the artist Gabriel Acevedo Velarde.
