Until now, the history of GDR cinema has been written primarily as a history of state film policy and production, with research largely ignoring the perspective of moviegoers. This is the point of departure for the citizen science research project "Cinema in the GDR," which aims to develop an everyday history of GDR cinema together with contemporary witnesses. To this end, the project has developed a technical platform that allows interested citizens to actively participate in the research process and share their experiences with academia.
