"Wende” is used in German to describe the events of the fall of the Berlin wall. In “Wende” groups of people are depicted walking on the streets and, at a given moment, all of a sudden and all at once, they make a turnaround, a twist. This relates to Bajevic’s idea that the people seems to be in continuous change: “The mass that is saying or has been spoken to in one way today might be saying / being spoken to totally differently, even in opposition to what has been said, tomorrow.” Hence her question: is change in fact “the only stable factor in history”?
