(EN) DER PALAST: Berlin Mitte after the fall of the Wall: dilapidated buildings are occupied, the city develops into a melting pot for creative and celebrating people. However, this is accompanied by a cultural flattening that revolves only around the taste of a global, well-off middle class while neighborhoods change, shops close and people are evicted. Der Palast gives visibility back to the city and its inhabitants. Through an overflowing stage design architecture, mirrored by the worldwide format of reality TV shows and the images of photographer Tom Hunter, who stages social themes in the style of the Old Masters, new narratives evolve between fiction and reality. The soundtrack is by Robert Lippok and a live band.
