Andreas Schoettke’s Wolfsburg is a good portrait of pretty much any, especially somewhat smaller German city - first a hasty reconstruction (right after World War II), then the ravages of various periods of ever more gruesome architecture (culminating in brutalism), and now an overly generous mix of concrete and fancy (or maybe just semi-fancy) architecture makes you search in vain for the city’s soul.
