Socialist Amnesia

Socialist amnesia is an exploration of the east Berlin district of Lichtenberg. It is a wandering into the space of die Wende the peaceful revolution of German re-unification. Socialist amnesia begins as an amnesia to annul the place of socialism in the aftermath of the Wende but evolves into an amnesia necessary to produce the new social relations of the twenty-first century. Yet in this process, we come to see how the social condition of amnesia itself acquires revolutionary potential in our age.
