30Y 02 Surveillance & Control

In a documentary short, photographer Harald Hauswald recounts being spied on by the East German domestic intelligence service. Memories of the Stasi headquarters at Normannenstrasse reappear, and the anxiety that social media and new technologies also bring tracking and persecution is fed. Police violence starts to resemble parody, until a true case of the mysterious disappearance of a child in the GDR brings us back to the crimes of the SED regime.
