Author:

Gemma Geldart (University of Bristol)

Paper short abstract:

Situated in central Berlin, Tacheles is an unusual and unique building which has undergone many diverse changes and occupancies during its one hundred year history. This film was created as part of the MA in Archaeology for Screen Media and was produced as an 'alternative kind of site report' or document. Using Tacheles as a focal point and considering ideas such as reflexivity, subjectivity and experience of place as inspiration, the film attempts to explore issues of voice, knowledge and the way personal insight may be utilised within the discipline. 10’ film and 10’ filmmaker-led discussion
