IFI & TEMPLE BAR GALLERY & STUDIO: DDR/DDR

AMIE SIEGEL

Book Tickets

These films have been selected by curator Megs Morley and artist Amie Siegel as part of her exhibition ‘Imitation of Life’ at TBG+S (Feb 19th – Apr 2nd).

DDR/DDR explores the German Democratic Republic and the remnants of its collapse. The politics of representing such a complex past is explored through this multi-layered, beautiful film essay. Challenging the conventions of documentary and narrative film through a montage of staged and performed moments, archived Stasi surveillance footage and interviews with former citizens and agents, Siegel examines the relationship between the development of cinema, psychoanalysis and the Stasi’s surveillance of its citizens, creating a work that self-consciously connects the technology of state control and art.

Followed by a Q&A with Amie Siegel.
