marxism today (prologue)

2010, 35 min

Artist Phil Collins shines a light on what is generally perceived as the losing side in the political and social upheavals of the past two decades. marxism today (prologue), 2010 was developed as a collaboration with teachers of Marxism-Leninism in the former German Democratic Republic, a mandatory feature of East German education which was swiftly abolished after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Collins follows three women and talks to them in their homes and former workplaces about the changes in their daily lives and belief systems that occurred post-1989. Intercut with the interviews are personal mementoes and archivel footage including propaganda films, TV programs, sporting rallies and choreographed mass spectacles.
