Week of November 8, 2019
This week on Aminus3 we take you back 30 years to 1989. Seattle was at the brink of an indie music revolution, a newspaper man sells his wares on the streets of Singapore, and an Estonian photographer gets his first glimpse of the Western world after the fall of the Berlin wall.
30 years ago, on the 9th of November 1989, the Berlin Wall was fallen. I was in East Berlin a couple of weeks later and couldn't believe first, that this is legal to visit West Berlin with a Soviet passport. It happened to be true, although.
I went through the border control and at the very first time it was there in front of me - the West World.
I celebrated this moment in an Irish pub with a pint of Guinness, I had only heard about until then. The beer cost almost a month stipend for me
In the late 80's, when I moved to Seattle, there was a strong artsy, independent vibe in the city and lots of musicians would hang out on the streets and perform. This was before Microsoft and the slick high tech vibe that dominates the city today...
