Where to with History?
debate with Hans Christian Post and Stephan Trüby

Hans Christian Posts urgent new documentary Where to with History? shows the extensive destruction of Dresden's city centre and its subsequent modernist reconstruction under the GDR regime. The rebuilding of Frauenkirche and a reinterpretation of recent history plays a central role in the narrative of right-wing movements such as Pegida.
The film will celebrate its Dutch premiere on Thursday 8 October. The connection between architecture and politics is the main subject of the following discussion between filmmaker Post and Stephan Trüby, one of Germany's leading architectural theorists. Carola Hein, Head of History of Architecture and Urban Planning at TU Delft, will lead the conversation. Does a reconstruction bring the ghosts of the past back to life?

From the devastating bombings of World War II to the epicentre of the far right in Germany. The story of Dresden is essential in understanding the rise of right-wing populism in Europe. Hans Christian Posts urgent new documentary Where to With History? shows the extensive destruction of Dresden’s city centre and its subsequent modernist reconstruction under the GDR regime. The reconstruction of Frauenkirche and a reinterpretation of recent history plays a central role in the narrative of right-wing movements such as Pegida.

On the one hand, Dresden is the figurehead of the East German boom after the fall of the wall, on the other it symbolises what goes wrong in Europe. Does a reconstruction bring the ghosts of the past back to life? Hans Christian Post uses interviews with politicians, city planners and critics to demonstrate how politics and architecture are inextricably linked. The dilemmas of a city under the spell of its heavily charged past become painfully visible.
