»Wall Visitors«

People at the Berlin Wall 1987 until today

Gottfried Schenk

In 2019, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Gottfried Schenk, an Austrian Photographer, portrayed wall visitors at different points in time: in front of the eerie setting of the border installation; followed by the “Wendejahr” at the decomposing wall, a place of joy and new beginnings; to Berlin visitors in search of remains of the Cold War.
