Berlin 89/09: Berlinische Galerie

Olaf Metzel, Fünfjahrplan, 1985
The exhibition carries out an investigation of the transformation the capital has experienced since the opening of the Wall, including work by artists who themselves have lived through these changes.
"When the Berlin Wall was opened, the city became the focus of international attention almost overnight: previously the symbol of two opposing political systems, it was now a barometer for the process of reunification and the test ground for new societal, cultural and architectural ideas."  [Berlinische Galerie, 2009]
