Working with artist Thomas Bratzke and designer Matthias Hübner is the ultimate dream. I’m so thrilled to see this book actualized (–yet another one we’ve worked together on bringing to completion!–) and to see the reaction of people reading who are from the GDR AND, awesomely, the West. Such interest. When reading the interviews, transitory romanticism is avoided. It’s easy to see how the collective memories expressed weakens the nearly automatic repressions/oppression experienced by youth raised before Germany’s unification. Very cool and huge thanks to everyone who has helped.
It was very fun going to Flasch’s special collection (Flaxman Library) and seeing the excitement of the purchaser to see a book honoring so many impt. topics rarely delved so deeply into due to this kind of paralysis felt from having one’s country ripped from underneath them. Shoutout to them too!
