From destructive bombing attacks during the Second World War to an epicentre of the far right in Germany.

The documentary shows a complex destruction of the centre of Dresden and its following modernist revitalisation demonstrating various facets and interpretations of the city’s history. The revival of buildings representing a complicated history became the main issue of the extremist movement called Pegida. The story of Dresden is key for understanding the rise of right-wing populism in Europe and proves that politics and architecture are closely intertwined.

Shown in programme with Kotěra and Czech architecture and the relics of political regimes
