Crisps, Beer Mark 20 Years of German Reunification


Aesthetics of Survival ∕ Crap Supermarkets

I was delighted to find that my local Kaisers supermarket was celebrating 20 Years of German Reunification as only Kaisers can: with a huge wall of beer and crisps. I quite like this. It’s so refreshingly discourseless. After ten months of broadsheet coverage, and hundreds of hours of reflective documentaries, it’s the right time for Reunification to kick its feet up on the sofa with a beer and some crisps. Prost!
