The fascinating story of Colorado music and film star Dean Reed and his life in East Berlin are recounted in this site. His fans are determined to put most aspects of his story out for their readers. By reading about his life and work in the German Democratic Republic, Americans in particular can learn much about life there and compare it with life in this country, at least for the creative community. There are some parallels with the earlier life in the GDR of American classical singer Aubrey Pankey, whose story is to be told in these webpages.

Katherina Sieverding's work in exhibition

A noted artist first attracted widespread interest in Europe with her striking concepts that convey some of the feeling of the issues that could not be easily escaped in Berlin.

"Sieverding's early films convey a spiritual quality, evoking complex images that are charged with emotion, memory, and imagination of the self. In the 30-minute film Life-Death (1969), which was shown for the first time at Documenta V in 1972, film acts as a device for Sieverding's self-reflection, illustrating the desire for life and death, and maintaining a balance between the two. With her own striking presence, enhanced by dramatic makeup and attire, Sieverding confidently investigates the existential dimensions of her own identity. On view at P.S.1 is a 42-part photographic series from Life-Death." -- P.S. 1
