Mauerschau - Die DDR als Film
Beiträge zur Historisierung eines verschwundenen Staates
[Wall Shows – The GDR as Film]
Ed. by Orth, Dominik / Preußer, Heinz-Peter
Aims and Scope
Future generations might remember the GDR, that vanished state, primarily through film. Be it love and everyday life, the Stasi and the construction and eventual fall of the Wall, reunification and Ostalgie: dramas, comedies, experimental forms, documentary films, and TV series allow us to peek over the wall long after its destruction. The contributions to this volume examine these varied images of the GDR through illuminating case studies.
