On the night of November 9 to 10, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell. The demolition of the border fortifications began in December 1989. The demolition began arbitrarily and uncoordinatedly. In Berlin, the work was already completed in November 1990. The dismantling of the almost 1,400 km long inner-German border, on the other hand, lasted until the mid-1990s.
In autumn 1989 the six photographers Bernd-Horst Sefzik, Gerhard Zwickert, Eberhard Klöppel, Peter Leske, Werner Schulze and Heinz Dargelis decided to document the condition of the border. From the Baltic Sea via Berlin to the border triangle in Bavaria, impressive photographs are taken. Until May 1990, they captured images of the border complex from their respective perspectives that did not previously exist from the eastern side.
The new series in the museum in the KulturBrauerei.
