A Place in Berlin | Intro by Barton Byg, UMass Amherst

Konzert im Freien

(Germany, 2001, dir. Jürgen Böttcher, 86 min., color, doc., EN ST)

A team of artists was commissioned to create the Marx-Engels Forum, a sculpture group commemorating the international workers’ movement in the center of East Berlin. Böttcher blends old and newly-shot footage of the monument to explore the changing meanings of monuments. Two well-known (East) German jazz musicians—Günter “Baby” Sommer (perc) and Dietmar Diesner (sax)—interpret the space and images musically.


The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
