  • New States
    hopeful In the midst of this idyllic countryside the nearby town s most obvious new building was a large Arbeitsamt a state job centre My friend herself had moved to Berlin to find work and despite a lack of real success in Berlin she didn t want to move back Photo by Juan Cabanillas Copied from Flickr This was a story I heard again and again in those years a constant theme it appeared of post reunification Germany The Berlin Wall offers itself as such a neat symbol of imprisoning control that it s tempting to see its physical demise as the end of the story Even the word fall suggests the Wall vanished overnight whereas the reality is of course simply that borders which had been closed and guarded for decades were suddenly declared open allowing East Berliners into the western half of their city and declaring the restrictions on movement over signalling a sea change in government policy and pointing to what was to come Symbolically it signified the end of state control over its citizens and more broadly a key moment in a gradual end to the Eastern Bloc and to the relief of half the northern hemisphere an easing of the standoff of the Cold War The reunification of Germany would follow less than a year later In the joy and celebration that accompanied all of this it was tempting to confuse the symbol with reality especially at a distance in England to imagine that everything was solved Congratulations East Germany now like us you can enjoy democracy and freedom and unlimited access to consumer durables that was the main thing wasn t it Yet it was more a question of merging two different countries For decades these had been separate nations with very different ideological backgrounds and experiences Dr Kaethe Wenzel artist moved to Berlin from western Germany a few years after reunification She recalls I never suspected that speaking the same language I would run into such communication problems But I soon found out that we didn t mean the same things by the same words For example I had to find out that I believe was East German for I know for sure but find it arrogant to say so The process of absorbing the legacies of two systems into one country was clearly not an overnight task Yet for a while in the nineties east west encounters in Berlin offered open minded Westerners a chance to see their own system with different eyes Wenzel remembers a very special atmosphere flats and people and conversations where outside luxuries and things seemed to matter so much less than anywhere in the West However the new Germany was largely for former East Germans to adapt to and there was some cultural distance to navigate While many from the former East managed the transition easily some did get lost along the way unable to survive in a new more individualistic system The throwaway materialism of western

  • Futures past
    two years By 1957 the town will be complete four housing quarters each with a library a pub and a school Houses will be spacious and have balconies side streets will have broad central strips with grass and trees to create roads that are quiet and safe A total vision This is not a glimpse of the past but of the past s dream of the future What is this town expressing A longing to accelerate away from the chaos of war the old trappings of urban industrial poverty A showpiece city displaying the strength and values of the new state A place to experiment with an environment that would foster socialist values A glance forward to the world that they might bring A desire for a brave new world A secret excitement in modern possibility All of those things I think It s the conservation order that keeps this place so well preserved now and blocks the over excited plans of property developers One inadvertent last stand I can t help thinking against the evils of capitalism Photo by ehst tzwen Copied from Flickr The stained glass in the former school is in socialist realism style It rises above the top of a flight of stairs I gaze up to note on one side a nurse holding up a healthy infant while on the other side children from different continents sit diligently at the feet of a teacher or play with construction blocks Its colours blaze down at me as the light pours through Gentle agitprop socialist identity building for young minds In radiant reds blues cool whites the image glows with blunt idealism These days the place is no longer a school but a museum of GDR culture I wander through the rooms gazing into the display cabinets They re full of objects from daily life food packaging Pioneersbadges books clothing posters Free Angela Carter gives me a double take I m the only visitor on this rainy weekday afternoon It s a cross between a tourist attraction and a sociological survey but the building itself speaks volumes Later my guide is keen to point out the schools to me Education here meant many things and these buildings were designed to be special They announced the importance of preparation for the future Of all the care that went into the finishing of the buildings here these received the most attention It reminds me that this isn t any old utopia Ideology shows up in other ways too of course My guide calls this town a laboratory of socialism The state had a hand in everything The lack of historical buildings for example no hangovers from the bad old days of capitalism The plan of the town was designed to focus on the entrance to the steelworks the point to which everything led There are open spaces and squares for people to meet an attempt to encourage community and build communal living Those imposing spacious homes here privilege fell

  • Christopher Isherwood, Leviathan of the Urinals: Berlin at The Space
    arms of its boys but distracting when it didn t Most effective were the renderings of sex the erotic brawling of Isherwood s tumbles with his strapping Germanic boys and the stretched mirrored movements of his encounter with the mother of a pupil and the contrast between the two scenes However Anais Alvarado s syncopated almost mime inspired movements as a waitress and the stylized CPR of a man beaten by the Nazis by a clown shoed doctor seemed piped in from another show The train chugs and hisses that trailed Isherwood to Berlin calling to mind the spectacular approach to the city in Symphony of a Metropolis was exhilarating but drowned out some important dialogue Askew s Isherwood is dynamic enough to carry a show and unassuming enough to be the audience s stand in our shock titillation and despair register on his face first David William Bryan s Auden is pickle faced and prim his faithful umbrella and constant whinging about the weather hints of his residual Englishness his tetchy unwillingness to be drawn in as deep as Isherwood is And by 1933 Isherwood is on over his head in love with a German boy as the city he loves is crushed under an SA boot its books burned clubs shuttered and degenerates imprisoned A decade earlier Isherwood and his childhood friend Edward Upward had conjured a macabre English village Mortmere settled by deviant vicars and general psychopaths and gripped by Lovecraftian horrors narrated in stories with titles like The Leviathan of the Urinals It was a satire and revocation of the English pastoral and of the Urians who sought their liberation here in neo Hellenism and green splendour The annals of Mortmere are dogged by catastrophe by malices machinist bureaucratic senseless the wrecking of a train Szilveszter Matuska style a metal burr on a road that rips a wheel and strands drivers at a gas station These terrors were a rotten English harvest in Isherwood s mind He could never have imagined their fulfilment clanking rubber stamped murder with interchangeable parts in Berlin and his flight from Germany was tinged with betrayal Unfortunately Askew s Berlin loses momentum after Isherwood flees and the coherence of the revolving roles and stripped stage crumbles His increasingly desperate tour through Europe with Heinz and Auden quickly descends into confusion and requires a surreptitious cue card announcing Amsterdam to tell us where they are but his final landing in America feels cathartic his real escape from hidebound Europe and its wars and the one that stuck Berlin continues at The Space until July 5 About Lauren Van Schaik Smith Lauren Van Schaik is a writer and historian Mail Web More Posts 9 Comments comments Prev Feature Film A Hard Day s Night Next This Sporting Life Colombians First Footballers Second Related Posts I Think We Eat Wrong A Monster Fed By Money Frieze Art Fair 2013 Sweeney Todd and the Relocation of the Fourth Wall Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up
