Time Is Away - Walter Benjamin: Berlin Childhood Around 1900

London, 01.12.20

This program concludes a loose series rooted in ideas of place, memory and loss.

Berlin Childhood around 1900 was begun in 1932 in Italy. German Jewish writer and philosopher Walter Benjamin was just beginning his exile, fleeing Nazi persecution. In it, he seeks refuge in memories of his earliest experiences of the city of his birth.

These reminiscences seem benign, but they track the ghosts of future loss, cataloguing a world about to be destroyed.

With love and thanks to Melanie Scheiner.

For Seb.
