Followed by a discussion with Thomas Elsaesser (Prof. em. Film and Television Studies, University of Amsterdam)


Die Schulung observes a seminar for executives. Sales statistics are transposed onto the individual; as body language, gestures, and facial expressions are practised, psychology and modern capitalism merge.

Die Umschulung (1994) shows how East German employees are taught sales techniques by a West German trainer and reveals “what was set up in East Germany after 1989: a training camp for the market economy in which techniques for self-representation are learnt” (Stefan Reinecke)

Admission: ticket (€ 7,50; members Arsenal and n.b.k.: € 5)
