For many it feels like a short time ago that Berlin, and indeed Germany as a whole, was divided by the Berlin Wall into the Capitalist West and Communist East. Austrian artist Yadegar Asisi brings this period of history to life, including the dramatic Fall of the Wall in 1989 and what happened in the years which followed. With panoramic views and a photographic exhibition detailing the personal accounts of those who witnessed these events it is the best way to appreciate this important period of world history.
Experiencing the dramatic history of Berlin
The German capital is famous for many historic events, ranging from the German Empire to the dark days of World War II and the years of division that followed. See what makes the country famous at places including the German Museum of Technology and Bauhaus Archive, or delve into more ancient history at the Altes Museum. The Jewish Museum and Checkpoint Charlie bring the events of World War II to life, while the asisi Panorama The Wall takes a more artistic approach to recording the situation of 20th Century Germany. Of course, the buzzing nightlife and restaurant scene as well as the many viewing platforms, parks and shopping districts are also big draws for those on a trip to Berlin.
Art and history at asisi Panorama The Wall
From the four metre high viewing platform at Checkpoint Charlie you will begin to appreciate what a divided Berlin looked like before 1989. The photo gallery is another important aspect to the exhibition, with witness accounts helping visitors understand why the Wall was created and what it was like to live on either side of it. While Asisi is an artist by profession, his work is grounded in the importance of historical accuracy.
