Reminds me of an art installation I saw during my time in Germany.
Imagine a room.
With a single, wall-sized, framed painting leaning against the wall.
Hanging tools littering the floor.
As I pondered this room, a woman approached me, and gave me the background.
In Soviet Russia, it was common for workers to just stop. Mid-task. And walk away, onto another task. Different orders.
Also, if you haven’t seen it, Goodbye Lenin is quite enjoyable.
