The Dead City and the City of the Dead - Daniel Jewesbury

Daniel Jewesbury ( United Kingdom )

While I'm in Berlin I'm researching a new film, 'Necropolis', which reflects on the death of the neoliberal city. To be shot entirely in urban cemeteries, burial grounds and graveyards, the piece examines the moribund nature of late capitalist space through a concentration on that which it strives to expel or repress: on one hand, quite literally, the dead; and on the other, any possibility of 'publicness' or commonality.

I'm also going to be working on a new book about Belfast, written with my colleague Robert Porter, and exploring possibilities for future collaborations between Belfast and Berlin.
