As a prelude to Kino! 2010, MoMA presents Amie Siegel’s DDR/DDR (2008), a film essay about contemporary life in the former DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik, better known as East Germany). Born in Chicago in 1974, Siegel graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Bard College before heading to Berlin on the DAAD Berliner-Künstlerprogram. There, she has created a number of distinguished installations and single-screen moving image pieces. Many of these works, which she refers to as “cine constellations,” examine the nature of objectivity and historical memory.
