How did victims and perpetrators feel about the Stasi and what effects are visible?
Ivanka Penjak has searched for personal answers via her camera. Portraits that show these people in their current daily surroundings. Images that portray an artistic interpretation of the past.
Stasi documents that illustrate this past. In interviews, the photographer explores the motives of the perpetrators and the emotions of the victims in order to reveal how closely political ideology and the conception of individual freedom are connected.
The book was divided into two parts: an extensive picture section that portrays the present and an interview section that focuses on the past.
Solid book cover, blind embossing on the title, stitching, 2 different types of paper.
