Publication series

In Medias Res: Media, (Still) Moving

June, 2021 – December, 2022

Our exhibition series In Medias Res: Media, (Still) Moving will be framed by a four-part series of publications dedicated to a concrete investigation of our building's history. The series will form the first comprehensive treatment examining the site. It will include essays, historical photographs and other archival materials by writers, theoreticians, and witnesses like Petra Kind, architecture historian, Grit Lederer, film director, Florian Weiss, curator at Berlin’s Allied Museum, and Florian Wüst, curator and artist. In addition, it features artist contributions by by Noah Barker, Max Eulitz, Michèle Graf and Selina Grüter, Anja Kirschner, D’Ette Nogle, among others.

Each publication has a thematic focus, such as the critical analysis of the building's National Socialist architecture, the influence of the U.S. Allies in Germany and West Berlin in particular, as well as cultural memory and film. In this context, they reveal historical breaks as well as continuities up to the present. The research and production of the publications will be carried out in close cooperation with public institutions such as the Allied Museum in Berlin-Dahlem, state archives and historians, as well as witnesses who share a personal connection to the building and its history.

The first publication will be released at the end of June 2021.
