Nobody has the intention of building a wall. (GDR head of state Walter Ulbricht, East Berlin, June 15th 1961)
Berliner Zeitgeist is a project that explores the ideas, stories and initiatives around the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Berlin Zeitgeist is project inspired by the last year event “When the Wall came Down” marking the Fall of the Berlin Wall. “When the Wall came Down” was an evening of presentations, music, film, food, conversations and performance. Hosted by Uta Baldauf and Katharina Child in Atelier.
This event inspired the idea to make a program for this year’s 30’s anniversary. Jo Leahy from the SVA joined the conversation and started planning a research trip to Berlin. All this sparked varies conversations and Charles Landry became involved and shared his Berlin cultural contacts with us. We shared our idea with Stroud groups and individuals whom are now taking part in a varied autumn program.
