30 years fall of the Berlin Wall (4. - 10. November 2019)

As a "witness of the times", the work of Margaret Hunter on the Berlin Wall is part of the 30th anniversary celebrations organized by Kulturprojekte and is shown alongside photographs and 3D film projections at the Brandenburg Gate and in the East Side Gallery.
Her story was one of seven in the book that accompanies and documents the 30th anniversary celebrations.
A good reason to remember our exhibition in 2011 when we showed the gallery version of the work as a walk-in installation. Photo Peer Kugler.
