Films on the Terrace: Fall 2021
Throughout September and October 2021, the Goethe-Institut Washington will screen films on the rooftop terrace at its R St. & 14th St space in NW Washington.
Seating is limited due to COVID-19 protocols; the terrace has a capacity of 55. Therefore, we kindly ask that registrants consider the commitment of attending a live and in-person film screening in downtown, Washington, DC, before registration. We would like to ensure that as many registrants as possible who will be able to join us on-site can RSVP. As seating is limited, we will release seating to walk-up guests as of 15 minutes before the beginning of each screening.
We look forward to seeing many of you again!
Video Installation | September & October 2021
Shaping the Past: Past, Present, Tense. (2015) Christa Joo Hyun D'Angelo
Predominantly East-German-socialized interviewees look back on German reunification and the hostile time that immediately followed, where racist attacks of arson in Rostock and riots were commonplace.
The engaging discussion surrounds the question of German identity and who is served by fixing this position in whiteness. Characteristic of Christa D'Angelo’s work, the conversations remain fluid, intimate, and personal, while speaking volumes to the responsibilities of colonial histories and detriments of cultural amnesia.
Starting September 13th, 2021
