How to Watch the Berlin Wall: Staging the Spectral Encounter The coverage not only stages the event as a pleasurable event for an American audience; it also instructs or educates viewers in how to watch the Berlin Wall, reminding us that, as John Hartley (1992) has argued, television is both a pleasurable regime and a “pedagogic” one (117). The triangulation of gazes (the gaze of the Easterners, the gaze of the Western officials, and the televisual gaze) becomes very significant in guiding us how to watch the Berlin Wall, the fall of communism, ‘history happening,’ and television.
For a discussion of the genre of Jewish narratives of return and homecoming, see Ksenia Polouetkova (2009). 5. In addition to the scholarship I specifically mention in this introduction and draw on throughout the book, I would prioritize as most useful and easily accessible to an American-based, English-speaking audience the work of Michael Kennedy (1994); Katherine Verdery (1996); Susan Gal and Gail Kligman (2000); Dina Iordanova (2001, 2003); William Brown, Dina Iordanova, and Leshu Torchin (2010); Maria Todorova (2010); Maria Todorova and Zsuzsa Gille (2010); and Anikó Imre, Timothy Havens, and Katalin Lustyik (2013).
Around the disintegrating site of the Berlin Wall, the coverage contains the ongoing events and eases any possible anxiety in terms of what direction these events are taking. In other words, the replay of the smooth and constant disintegration of the fall of communism at the site of the Berlin Wall re-assures us that, even as the events muddle the clean narrative of transition as joyful incorporation, communism is disintegrating. It offers an ideal projection/ending for how transition should happen: the joyful integration of the former communist other into capitalism.
