East meets west – art exhibition in London

In the context of an art exhibition about the east/west conflict in Germany at the second half of the last century, we were invited to London. As a Berlin based tape artist collective we had the opportunity to find a real connection to the subject, since it is still present in every day life in Berlin. As a motif, we chose a personified watchtower symbolizing all the conflicts that happened right at the Berlin wall. The watchtower saw all of the pain the people experienced during this time. This is why the watchtower is crying. The sign reading “YOU ARE LEAVING WESTBERLIN” simply underlines the difficult circumstances at the time.
