Title: Beyond the Wall: Art and artifacts from the
GDR / Jenseits der Mauer: Kunst und Alltagsgegenstände aus der DDR
Authors: Edited by Justinian Jampol
Language: English, German
The Wende Museum in Los Angeles was established in 2002 to study the
visual and material culture of the former Eastern Bloc.
This encyclopedic volume of 900 pages features over 2500 items from its
extraordinary collections. Never before has a book included this full a
spectrum of art, archives, and artifacts from socialist East Germany:
official symbols and dissident expressions, the spectacular and the
routine, the mass-produced and the handmade, the funny and the tragic.
Packaged in a slick, portable box, the book also comes with a facsimile
of a GDR family scrapbook, documenting real and imagined travels both
within East Germany, and across the border.
