… 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the historical importance of the structure enters anew into the public eye. Questions regarding the use of the vestiges of the GDR-coined Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart as well as about the monument’s value as a world heritage site or Cold War relic will continue to be surrounded by heated debate. One thing, however, is certain: The Wall, whose symbolic allure remains albeit undiminished, has a physical contour that increasingly predisposes it to the elusion of collective memory… (Christoph Schaden)

18300 meters of The Berlin Wall in 1144 photographs, step by step, picture by picture. What happens by choosing the book as the transforming media, is that the audience can actually “read“ The Wall. The book design follows as the pictures can be read from left to right and top to bottom. Front cover is the first photo of the project, back cover the last.
