ExBlicks – Surveying the Stasi (OmeU)
This month’s EXBlicks special-edition features a unique programme of films from the Stasi vaults. In addition to internal surveillance footage, training films, commemorative music clips produced by the Stasi’s own film unit as well as short documentaries about Cold War espionage in Berlin will be shown with English subtitles.
Presented by Exberliner and the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen memorial in co-operation with Interfilm, the screenings will be followed by the customary complimentary wine and a discussion with the director of the memorial, Hubertus Knabe.
Director Knabe speaks during TEDSalon 2014
Berlin is today one of the world's most vibrant cities, a hub of design, technology, culture and global affairs. But it was only 25 years ago, in 1989, that the Berlin Wall came down, reuniting East and West in a city that had been divided for decades. On the Eastern side of the city sits the AdmiralsPalast which hosted the Berlin TEDSalon on June 23, 2014, the first official TED event in Germany.
