An audio walk through the city district of Mitte recorded by Teobaldo Lagos, with excerpts from the novel “To die in Berlin” (1993) by Chilean author Carlos Cerda, which tells the story of a family inside a community of Chilean refugess in the GDR. The novel deals with the disintegration of relationships as well as the disappointment of encountering with real socialism. The Museum of Democracy engages thus in a dialogue that appeals to the symbols of the place applied to the territory of the unknown.
