The speaker reflects on the political changes on the other side of the Baltic Sea, with references to artefacts in the landscape and in our cultural heritage. These intertextual and intermedial reflections function as a demonstration of an ethos: an openness to the Other, a willingness to respond to the world and to communicate with other voices in a boundless reciprocity, mediated by artefacts.
