Research

I spent a good deal of time yesterday doing research on the Berlin stickers.  In so doing, I’ve come across a new topic regarding the politics of football in Germany and other European countries.  Some of the stickers I gathered refer to football teams that oppose the nationalist politics of the sport and to audiences that promote racist and fascist politics.  I think I’ve got that right.  There is quite a lot of information on the Web at anarchistsoccer.org and other sites.

Sticker archive

I’ve been archiving the stickers I liberated from my recent trip to Berlin, and I’m still not done yet.  I’ve pulled all of the political stickers, however, in order to scan them this week and prepare a proposal for a 2010 CAA session on the Berlin Wall pre- and post-1989.  The city was covered with antifa stickers, with one that says, “Does Germany Have a Right to Exist?”  Many other topics to explore….

I don’t know why, but this video just cracks me up.

Antifa stickers in Berlin

I saw a lot more antifa stickers on this trip than ever before, as well as stickers about capitalism, consumerism, GM, AIG, NATO, Afghanistan, and a sticker that said Stasi 2.0.  Plenty of research to do after this trip.
