East German Typewriter - DDR Museum
via Nate Hofer
Katherine over at BackGarage has a great post up about her recent trip to Berlin and a stop at the storefront Deutsche Demokratische Republik Museum. The DDR's focus isn't on exposing crimes committed behind the Iron Curtain, but showing how everyday East Berliners lived, or should we say lived without. It really highlights the emotional attachments we sometimes make to objects and simultaneously makes STUDY a little uncomfortable since we'll be spending this weekend in the capitol of conspicuous consumption.
