    Thank you for this fascinating and thought-provoking post. This week I was in the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester and was bowled over by the sheer volume of ‘ordinary’ stories that had gone into creating that outstanding museum. More than that, it’s the respect that is accorded to these ‘everyday’ lives that impressed me. I had never been in a place where the Big Picture – the politics, the world stage, the famous people – was woven so effectively with the myriad ‘little pictures’ that make up the whole of life. The ordinary truly is extraordinary! I hope you have a great time in Berlin and look forward to reading about it.

    oh, this is so exciting. bon voyage, and when you have the chance put your thesis up in a private website and give me the password!!!!!! i’m electrified by reality and art (what a farkin pompous thing to say) — i think it’s the only thing. i think art is a survivor strategy for those in extremity as well, pace adorno — primo levi was thunderstruck with a line from the inferno (Remember where you came from! You are Greeks!) while crossing the yard at auschwitz, otto frank, the only survivor of his family, whistled beethoven. etc.
