Ein Reich is inspired by Uchronia or alternate history, a literary subgenre in science fiction that speculates on alternative historical events which lead to different paths for politics and society. The six individuals portrayed give accounts of events they witnessed or experienced. Based on books such as ‘The Man In The High Castle’ (Philip K. Dick, 1962) and ‘Fatherland’ (Robert Harris, 1992), Ein Reich, as the title suggests, shows us a fictional present with a decidedly sinister undertone. Balancing between history and imagination, the work creates doubt and emphasizes the thin line between reality and fiction. It triggers doubtful recollections and shows their consequences.
