If Erich Honecker had seen Bowlingtreff, he would have put it on wheels and rolled it to Berlin, comments somebody as they recall this bowling alley in Leipzig. Built in 1987, Bowlingtreff unleashed a minor revolution. The postmodern architecture of the building was unprecedented, even drawing the admiration of the ‘godmother van postmodernism’ herself, Denise Scott Brown. In this revealing film, the DDR's ambition to keep up is almost touching. Parquet flooring, a glazed roof and pink columns: it sought to exude the wealth of the perfidious West. Los Angeles in the DDR.
