West Berlin in the Eighties: the novel of a generation
“No Future”: under this slogan, a group of young people squatted a building in Kreuzberg, Berlin in the early 1980s. Politically and artistically active, they tried to lead a life in opposition to the perceived lies of West German society. Their mood alternated between trailblazing euphoria and internal disputes under the constant shadow of state authority. Then, an accident changed everything: a squatter died. Her death sent shockwaves through the group of revolutionaries.
Heinz Bude, Bettina Munk and Karin Wieland have written a book based on their own experiences. Impact is set in a world of punk and street fights, AIDS and drugs, crude art and wild theories, blatant sex and deep affection during a period of no compromise, especially between men and women. When New Wave exploded into the bars and clubs, the Berlin Wall fell, right next to the squat. The Eighties were over. But in this wild, major work, they are brought back to life.
