Short film

Next to the site of the Stadtschloss, the Palace of the Republic, which is draped in mobile phone advertising, a group of people are standing, all fixedly holding up their phones. Their view is trained on the former State Council building of the GDR. Looking up at the new version of the old palace, which represents a system under which the African colonies were redistributed in the 19th century at the Congo Conference and which now, after its completion, will house Berlin‘s ethnological collections, a stroller tries to make sense of how the world is measured and distributed.
