After the Fall

Perth Festival Writers Week
After the Fall

In 1989 the Wall dividing East and West Berlin was finally opened, revealing a sham ‘democracy’ in which fake news was the only news and the truth had gone underground. Thirty years on we still live in a world deeply divided by walls of all kinds – ideological, religious, economic, racial. So what has really changed?

In this special presentation acclaimed Australian author of Stasiland Anna Funder revisits the lives of those who worked for, or were oppressed by, the German Democratic Republic’s notorious secret police – the Stasi – while reflecting on life in Trump’s America.
