|Title:||Re-presenting the traumatized space of Berlin : narrative and Fetish in The Wall Jumper and Good Bye, Lenin!||Authors:||Song, Sharizah Dianah Xiufen||Keywords:||DRNTU::Humanities||Issue Date:||2017||Abstract:||This paper will discuss the construction of German national identity in relation to the traumatic physical space of Berlin and its aestheticized re-presentations, in particular the Berlin Wall and the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Through an exploration of The Wall Jumper (1982) and Good Bye, Lenin! (2003), I track the trajectory of these re-presentations and highlight how these re-presentations become increasingly complicated in a post-Wall era and affect the possibility of creating a unified German identity. At the same time, this paper reveals the need to engage with an expansion of the current trauma aesthetic, to include narrative and fetish as well.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/70307||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
