For the exhibition "Walking through walls", contemporary artists present their works on the theme of walls, demarcations and divisions. Sculptures, video and light installations show the different approaches to the subject. Fittingly, Martin-Gropius-Bau stood on the border between East and West Berlin until German reunification in 1990.
Between identity and vulnerability
In the exhibition, the artists deal with the psychological and physical effects of division of living space. They follow the question of how borders and divisions contribute to individual and collective identity. The installations sometimes reflect the fragile balance in which man-made barriers exist. Others reflect the human and social feelings of fear and vulnerability expressed in walls and boundaries.
