A series of giant photos shot since 2006 by photographer Kai Wiedenhoefer comprise an exhibit on the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall, in what organizers called a protest underlining the futility of barriers to resolve conflict. The exhibit features large pictures of separation barriers at the world’s tensest borders in Baghdad, Korea, Cyprus, Mexico, Morocco, Israel, Belfast, and in the former East Germany itself.
“Walls are no solution for today’s major political problems and I think the Berlin Wall is the best proof of that.” says Wiedenhoefer. He photographed the barriers between 2003 and 2012 . It took five years to get permission to display the images in Berlin.
The “Wall on Wall’ exhibit will run through Sept. 13, 2013.
