The Angel of History

There has never been a document of culture, which is not simultaneously one of barbarism.


A border in Europe. A painting by Paul Klee. A poem by Walter Benjamin. A film about borders, escape and migration. About yesterday and today, and how difficult it is to recognize one behind the other.
