“Nobody has the intention of building a wall…” – Walter Ulbricht, GDR head of state, East Berlin, 15th June 1961
An exploration of walls and their hidden messages: as forms of remembrance; as containers; as national, political or ideological divides; as hosts to graffiti.
Stuart and Angela pool their interests in art, radical / local history, and Germany’s post-war past to bring to life the story of the rise and fall of one of the world’s most notorious walls.
