NOTE: THE EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Life on the island of West Berlin. A glance over the wall. ISLANDSCAPES follows the experiences of women between West Berlin and Iran in 1979 – between diaspora and revolution, left unseen beneath the surface in German-German collective memory. Film and performance dive into female re-membrance, for maybe Islands are just peaks of vast mountains underwater.
In ISLANDSCAPES documentary video art and dance come together and blur memories of Berlin’s division and the beginning of the Iranian revolution: fighting for democracy on their parents’ shoulders, these children protest the Berlin wall, arguing for freedom once again. ISLANDSCAPES tells about the collective memory’s (in-)visibilities and sheds light the blind spots of history.
