Collectors item

Video co-production of the Felix Meritis Foundation and Stichting Metropool, in collaboration with the Goethe Institut Amsterdam, Paradiso & ThuisKopie Fonds.


Through the quote above from Heiner Müller (1929-1996) a debate ensues between intellectuals and artists from Eastern and Western Europe (among them Andrei Bitov, Gyorgy Konrad, Heiner Müller and Peter Schat) about arts and politics, money and censorship, expectations about Eastern Europe. This leads back to a reflection on the Gulf War : the poem American Football by Harold Pinter, recited by Heiner Müller.
