Titel: The German issue
Like a time capsule, "The German Issue" brings together all the major "issues" that were being debated on both sides of the Atlantic--which eventually found their abrupt resolution in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall. It involved the most important voices of the period--from writers and filmmakers to anthropologists, activists and poets, terrorists and philosophers: Joseph Beuys, Michel Foucault, Christo, Christa Wolf, Walter Abish, Alexander Kluge, Paul Virilio, Ulrilke Meinhof, William Burroughs, Jean Baudrillard, Hans Magnus Enzenberger, Maurice Blanchot, Hans Jurgen Syberberg, Heidegger, Andre Gorz, Helke Sander. Opening with Christo's "Wrapping Up of Germany" and the celebrated dialogue between East German dramaturge Heiner Muller and Sylvere Lotringer on the Wall ("Mauer"), since published in many languages, "The German Issue" offers a first-hand account of the Western world on the threshold of a major global mutation.
