about

The Russian term "Samisdat" means "self-published" and stands for illegal underground-publications in former communist countries. Fighting for civil rights, freedom of speech & press and against censorship publishers often had to face oppression by the government – surveillance, prison sentences, penalties etc. Under adventurous circumstances they managed to organize ink, paper and printing machines and tried to spread the word.

Based on interviews with 4 former underground publishers in the GDR the radio feature tries to explore the difficulties of self-publishing in a state with no freedom of speech or freedom of press. Along with the audio piece a riso-printed booklet was published.
