Icons of a Border Installation: Photographic Search for Traces in Today's Berlin

May 27 - June 12
(Ikonen einer Grenzanlage:Fotografische Spurensuche im heutigen Berlin)

Since the Wall fell 20 years ago, the appearance of the capital, its everyday life and the attitudes of its citizens have changed fundamentally. Still, the Wall lives on, not only where one can view material remnants of the Berlin Wall, but also in the self-image of the city, its residents and visitors. Starting with historic photos documenting the building of the Wall and texts in which the wall finds a voice, 36 students attempted to ferret out the atmospheres of the past. Organized by Prof. Dr. Barbara Becker and photographer Jürgen Spiler at the Institute for Media Science, University of Paderborn.
