COLD WAR SPACES SERIES
In these times of pandemic-induced confinement, the Wende Museum presents a new series of interviews and mini-lectures reflecting on Cold War spaces. How does space impact the way we live and experience our environment? What did private space really mean under socialism? What was the function of public space between state planning and private appropriation? Who was sent to the secluded spaces of prisons, mental institutions, and gulags? What imaginary spaces were created by art, science fiction, and utopian dreaming? And how did all these spaces change after the fall of the Berlin Wall? This interview and lecture series will explore the many possible answers. Held weekly on Wednesdays at 12 p.m. PST for thirty minutes via Zoom.
