Framed Memories of Berlin: Film, Architecture and Remembrance

Framed Memories of Berlin: Film, Architecture and Remembrance AbstractCollective memory can be defined as a shared notion of how a social group constructs its past. Architecture and cinema play a major role in the creation of collective memory, buildings by structuring lived experiences and films by framing, re-presenting and fixing those experiences so they can be collectively revisited. In this study, well-known films of Berlin from throughout the twentieth century, both fiction and non-fiction, are studied to explore their contribution to the memory-making process in a city subject to repeated destruction. In images, the current version of various prominent film locations is juxtaposed with its filmic counterpart to highlight both continuities and discontinuities and to ask after their role in remembrance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
