70.001, 2019

The Monday demonstrations in East Germany in 1989 to 1991 were a series of peaceful political protests against the government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) that took place every Monday evening.

70.001 is a speculative view of the events of 1989 from today‘s perspective. A computer animation is used to simulate Leipzig as hundreds of thousands of so-called digital agents move along the inner city ring. The crowd swells continually until the procession of demonstrators faces itself. The animation is accompanied by interviews with contemporary witnesses and discussions on digital culture.
