Die Wende

curated by Carson Chan and
Fotini lazaridou-hatzigoga
2010

Die Wende (“The Turn” in German) is the story of a group of women from former East Germany who are training to perform a particular movement in synchronized swimming called “die Wende,” in which the swimmer makes an underwater backwards loop. The women, most of them over 60, are part of a still active East German association (Verein) and have been training together for over 20 years now.
Die Wende also refers to the period of time immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall. “The Turn” marks the complete process of the change from socialism and planned economy to democracy and capitalism.
