At Galerie M in the center of Berlin-Marzahn, at the very eastern edge of Berlin some of the first inhabitants of that area are revisiting. In an architectural setting that ressembles east-german highrisers, some small scenes from a GDR television soap opera from the 1980s are appearing. The actors seem to stutter rhythmically: the sampled footage forms an electronic choir of everyday life and philosophical thoughts.
