|SOVIET YOUNGSTERS WERE HIPPIES, TOO!|
This week's arts and culture column begins like this:
The Wende Museum in Culver City aims by use of the word to describe the “transformative period leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.”
Admission is free. The museum is open Wednesday and Thursday for school and university tours only, Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
On offer are art, artifacts and history from the Eastern Bloc.
All is modern, sleek, clean, crisp.
Display boxes lining a side hall include “socialist realism” sculptures, diplomatic gifts, glassware and ceramics, and blocky Cold War radios and telephones that could have come straight from an episode of the ’60s spy-spoof TV series “Get Smart.”
