On Sunday, 23 August 2020, the video installation Wiepersdorf between War and Peace by documentary film director Sebastian Eschenbach was officially opened by Dr. Manja Schüle, Minister for Science, Research and Culture of the State of Brandenburg, with invited guests. Eschenbach explores the history of Wiepersdorf and its castle in the Lower Fläming region after the Second World War in a cuboid projection and four videos lasting about 13 minutes, based on the memories of contemporary witnesses.

The video installation was on display from 29 August to 1 November 2020 in Schloss Wiepersdorf.

A teaser of the video installation is available on the Vimeo channel of the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf.

75 years after the Second World War, the Brandenburg documentary film director Sebastian Eschenbach devotes himself to the history of the village of Wiepersdorf and its castle in Lower Fläming. In his video installation, he explores social, historical, geographical, political, artistic and human spaces in the in-between. The memories of the contemporary witnesses roam the site, always in motion, overlapping, concealing, affirming or contradicting each other. The result is a parallel montage with a very special kind of dynamic.

A film by Sebastian Eschenbach, Britta von der Behrens and Thomas Malz. A production of the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf
