30 years ago, in November 1989, after 28 years of existence, the Berlin Wall, symbol of German division, was accidentally opened by strong public pressure from many people in the eastern part of the country. The trigger was a misleadingly formulated note read at a press conference by Günter Schabowski, O-tone: “To the best of my knowledge … that is immediately, at once”.

On the occasion of this globally symbolic event, Schloss Biesdorf will open the exhibition Von Menschen und Mauern / Of People And Walls on October 27, 2019. In addition to various artistic works on the Berlin Wall, its opening and its slow disappearance, the exhibition shows positions on political walls in a global context. Today, walls still demarcate and exclude people all over the world, they lock them in, constrict and separate people from each other. The perspectives of the participating artists reveal dividing lines and boundaries between the included and the excluded, illuminating the relationship between man and political power.
Works of fine art from various genres are shown: painting, graphics, sculpture, photography, performance, multimedia and video.

A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.

An event of the department of culture Marzahn-Hellersdorf.
