"KINO SIEMENSSTADT - The Complex of Labour" is the second part of the online film series, which this year focuses on Berlin-Siemensstadt as a working-class neighborhood. It engages with the changing concept and understanding of labour in the fields of artists’ films and videos against the backdrop of the upcoming project Siemensstadt 2.0, which was jointly initiated by the Siemens company and the Berlin Senate, and comprises an urban and social restructuring process for Siemensstadt on a massive scale (projected to run until 2030). The series KINO SIEMENSSTADT is named after the former cinema at Nonnendammallee 96 in Berlin-Siemensstadt, which from 1931 until 1962 was one of the few entertainment venues for Siemens workers and their families.
