The Prussian Room

Although its full nature remains quite unclear, The Prussian Room seems to be a dreamlike, delirious person, place, thing and idea in which the failure of the state becomes apparent, in which an appearance of failure and liability are formed, and in which the care, concern and love expressed by the state are rejected. It is both a failure of care and pi(e)ty. It is Pityism run aground.

In the film Masks in the Sun, the place known as Jean’s apartment or The Dark Apartment are in some senses the Prussian Room.
