Einstürzende Neubauten in Elektrokohle (Von Wegen).
A film from Uli M. Schueppel.

A documentary about Einstürzende Neubauten that marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, a concert film documenting the band’s first foray into East Berlin on Dec. 21, 1989.

At noon on December 21st, 1989 the members of Einstuerzende Neubauten – a band then hailed as a West-German cult export – hit the road in West Berlin for their very first concert in East Berlin, (still-) capital of the GDR. In the film, it is still a long, strange journey from Berlin Kreuzberg to Berlin Lichtenberg, into the Wilhelm Pieck-Hall of the industrial plant VEB Elektrokohle. The Berlin Wall is still standing and there are still tedious border control…

Filmmaker Uli M Schueppel, a friend of the band, accompanied Einstuerzende Neubauten throughout this ‘extraordinary’ day – extraordinary for the musicians who for the most part had grown up in West Berlin and who previously had never been granted an official permit to perform in the GDR. Extraordinary, because the concert in the evening had been arranged through the mediation of GDR playwright Heiner Mueller, who was a friend of Blixa Bargeld at that time, and who also would introduce the concert with a short speech. The fact, that he appeared backstage with a delegation of French ministers (amongst them then Culture Minister Jack Lang) belongs to the bizarre side-occurrences of that day…

But most notably, this concert is also an extraordinary event for the GDR audience, which had associated so much with the name and concept of Einstuerzende Neubauten, and which was suddenly – facing the band and the West – confronted with their projections.

What happened back then, on that particular day – ‘in between’? This film merges the paths of West and East. 20 years later some of the concertgoers trace those paths that led them to the concert hall of the VEB Elektrokohle. Sometimes from around the neighbourhood, sometimes from Berlin’s surroundings, or even from barracks 300km away – retrospectively they reflect a road, which on the one hand led them to this once-in-a-lifetime pop event, and on the other to the German reunification.

Out of these various Western/Eastern routes to the concert emerges a temporal mosaic of Berlin on this ‘extraordinary’ day – a journey back to a German ‘in between-time’.
