The video “My Castle Your Castle” investigates the construction site of the Berliner Stadtschloss (the Berlin Castle), a Prussian baroque palace currently being rebuilt on the site of the “Palace of the Republic,” the now-demolished seat of the GDR’s parliament.
While significantly damaged during World War II, the Berliner Stadtschloss survived and was only finally torn down in 1950, following a decision of GDR authorities. Artist Kerstin Honeit looks at this loaded site as a place where national hegemonies supposedly transform into identity-generating architectures, and so appear as spaces which can be conquered and restaged.
