Opening July 10th in Berlin: Wall on Wall at West Side Gallery in Berlin:
The concept of the exhibition is simple: on the longest remaining part of the Berlin Wall at Mühlenstraße we will glue 364 m of the wall with 36 huge panoramics. Its on the side of wall which points towards the river Spree. The other side of the wall is known as East Side Gallery and one of the touristic hotspots of Berlin.
Each picture measures 3 m x 9 m. The height is determined through the distance between the base of the wall and the lower part of the tube on top of the wall. All photographs are executed with large format cameras which makes the big enlargements possible. The pictures will cover 1080 sqm and are printed with an inkjet printer on blueback paper and than mounted on the wall with normal wallpaper glue. The panorama photographs will only be interrupted by a white sheet with a caption in English and German. We made already a test with a photograph from the US | Mexican border and after 20 days we removed the work without any remains on the wall.
