Summary

With the exception of remnants, the Berlin Wall was systemically torn after it fell in 1989. New houses and office complexes were erected on the site of the former death strip. It was intended that Berlin 'grow together' particularly quickly here. Over the course of the past four seasons of the year, Stephan Kaluza has stridden the 50 kilometre route between Berlin-Schildow in the north and Berlin-Schouml;nefeld in the south along the former border where the Berlin Wall stood. At intervals of 1 meter, he took a photograph of the no longer existent Wall. He thus photographed a reminiscence, a 'ghost' a Wall that was no longer present, but which nevertheless remains a part of our memory and consciousness. Kaluza assembled these 30,000 pictures into a single, long seamless image. A document was thus produced in which the past and the visible present merge into a unique pictorial space, an image in which time seems to have been suspended. Familiar places such as the new government district on the Spreebogen, the Brandenburg Gate and the former border crossing site at Checkpoint Charlie alternate seemingly inadvertently with fallow land, remnants of the Wall and construction sites a kaleidoscope of the transformation of the German capital. English, German and French text.
