Drawing on a vast range of material – from the first films of Berlin in the 1890s, to the city's impact on contemporary digital art – WALLS OF BERLIN examines how Berlin's walls form apertures that mediate their preoccupations and manias, damage and scars, non-erasable inscriptions and outlandish markings, fractures and fissures, strata and outgrowths, veerings and oscillations across time, corporeal traces and residues, sexual obsessions, and revelatory urban vanishings. In a rich cultural history of the city's memories and its acts of oblivion, Stephen Barber probes many of its overlooked but most illuminating spaces and sites inflected by art and film – alongside the visual, textual and sonic presences that inhabit them.
