Historical Sights – an urban installation
15 June – end of August 2011, city centre
Urban installations will be on view from 15 June until the end of August at selected sites along the former path of the Berlin Wall. Large-format documentary black-and-white photographs will depict the situations that could be seen in many parts of Berlin as of 1961. A fascinating journey back in time.
15 June, the start date for the urban installations, is a reference to the oft-quoted statement by Walter Ulbricht at an international press conference held on 15 June 1961: “Nobody intends to build a wall.”
